Top Of The Crop Tops

Standard

I found these delightful tablecloths a couple of months ago and my crop top production began…..

By using a complementary vintage fabric on the back I could get two or three tops from each cloth,depending on its size of course. My addiction soon took hold and I really enjoyed the chance to mix and match fabrics and even used some Laura Ashley patchwork pieces to appliqué over any marks on the cloths. As usual I only made one of each by using different appliqué or back fabrics. The pattern was from the 80s and according to Vogue and the high street I seem to be bang on trend…

More cloths led to more tops….

  1. Enjoy Saturday! I’m sure you won’t need any luck as your latest creations are gorgeous. Love the shirt with the little figures on, the first one. Gorgeous work and well done!

  2. I’m really beginning to like 80s fashions! Never thought I’ll see the day but your tops are so lovely! My favourites are on the sixth photo, the red and green ones. So gutted I’ll miss the car boot tomorrow… and to think I’ll be in London later in the month! Good luck to you and your beautiful model! xxx
