New Design: Barcelona

If you are wondering about the name, it is the color that gave me this idea. It is such a rich and beautiful red, that I thought of Spain and their love of that color. I wanted to design a long vest or tunic which you can wear almost all year round with different tops underneath.
 It turned out as I hoped - flattering and very urban. I wrote it for 17 sizes from 33" to 65" with about 2" positive ease.
