I finally got around to visiting a shop in Berkeley called Lacis which has all sorts of wonderful things including old embroidered housewares. I chose a pretty pillowcase and turned it into this top. The detailing, which I turned into the neckline, has faded blue thread and I added elastic to give the top some shape. The straps are made from the fabric that I cut away from the bottom. This top will be perfect for all my summer adventures!
