look for a chevron stitch (that's the main stitch).

Picks yarns with at least 25% wool (so it's blockable).  That particular tunic is made with synthetic yarn, but that's probably why the hems aren't crisp.

I think it's constructed by seaming the back together, then adding the bottom, then picking up the neckline stitches and working the band--hard for me to see the detail there.

The shape of the top is similar to stargazer from Magknits here http://magknits.com/July07/patterns/stargazer.htm

and the chevron stitch is similar to this http://www.straw.com/cpy/patterns/shimmer_chev_scarf.html

so you could somehow.. combine the two? Smiley

Wow, way to rip off, charlotte russe.  The only different is the neckline border!
