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….
….and here’s my lovely daughter Ami modelling some…….I made her too!
Lots of lovely new pieces for my stall at The Classic Car Boot Sale this Saturday on London’s South Bank……Wish me luck….
Very cute. 🙂
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!
Thank you! That’s my favourite too…managed to keep a piece for myself.
These are so nice and I will look out for you on Saturday, I like the second top! x
Thanks! See you there…x
Ami looks so beautifully fresh in your adorable crop tops (with the big bows in her hair, like a modern-day ’80s Madonna !). Good luck for Saturday ! X
Thank you! I make the bows too with leftover fabric. Xx
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
Thank you very much! Enjoy London!! X
They’re great. Such a lovely shape & as you say bang ‘on trend’ 🙂
