Darya Dip Dyed Cover-Up 

This boho cover up is made of portable lacy squares that are joined to create this gorgeous wearable. Darya can be worn open, belted or converted to a vest by seaming up the sides. Besides the chic lacy detailing, the main focus of this piece comes from its tie-dyed look! The cotton squares are dip dyed in an ombre pattern, then joined to create a truly unique garment that is easily customizable.
