As per the dictionary meaning a yoke is a part of a garment that fits over the shoulders and to which the main part of the garment is attached.

A Front Yoke Top is a Top, which has a separate joint at the front.

This joint can be a separate fabric or the same fabric with some design/pattern changes, which you wish to add to the main dress for some dramatic look.

Sometimes, a Yoke is joined, when you are short of same color fabric from the same length.

But most of the times, a frontal yoke is added to create a focal point in the front of a dress.

Why add a yoke to any dress

So I cut the pieces separately and joined them together, hiding the joint with a ribbon. You may use a lace as well.
