Description

This is a linen top I up cycled from a hand embroidered cloth I purchased at a vintage auction

I have cut the shape from one piece and I have added vintage white cotton lace and pinched darts as accents.

Shown with a Barn leather skirt and Murberry pewter sandals. The bangles are from Marks and Spencer.

I would be more than happy to share the pattern instructios however I am not sure how to do this?

      I am making loads of outfits from old tablecloths! I love looking at the piece of fabric and imagining what the piece of fabric is going to be!
