Cotton and Lace Camisole, Altered Couture From Vintage Laces and Fabrics





Cotton, Crochet and Lace Camisole, Altered Couture, Tank Top, Boho, Gypsy, Prairie-Girl,  Made From Vintage Laces and Fabrics 








Cotton and lace camisole, prairie, boho style top, altered couture from vintage laces and fabrics. Vintage style loose fitting top is perfect for layering over tanks or bralettes, or could be used as a swimsuit cover.The front panel of this vintage inspired top is embellished with a vintage embroidered table linen, with Battenburg tape lace edging, and a handmade fabric flower. The back has a crocheted middle panel which adds a little bit of stretch and interest.




This top was made from a previous mistake in measurement for a small skirt and since I hate to let anything go to waste I found a way to salvage the mishap. The back panel crocheted piece is a vintage "chair arm cover" doily which was handmade. The lace trim along the edges and straps is from the Edwardian era as is the front embellishment of embroidered cotton with battenburg tape lace trim.
