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….
