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.

Hand Made Reconstructed One of a Kind

Handmade OOAK Deconstructed Crocheted Bohemian Skirt

blue-velvet-crochet-skirt-1

This skirt is a one of a kind deconstructed piece, the yoke of this skirt is from a pair of vintage 1980’s, Gloria Vanderbilt,cotton blue velvet, jeans, and four crocheted cotton, rectangular doilies. The top skirt is from a vintage 70’s cotton crocheted mini-dress and it has an under skirt which was salvaged from a vintage, girls, cotton gauze, dress to which a crinkled taffeta ruffle with raw edges, has been added for that great layered bohemian look.. The original pants zipper is still in use as the front closure and a decorative lace up application has been added to the back yoke. The watch pocket has been appliquéd with a sequined flower patch in deep royal blue (hard to see in the pictures), in order to cover the swan monogram that is Gloria Vanderbilt’s insignia. All of the original pants pockets are still usable, as the crocheted rectangles were sewn on by hand with sturdy quilting thread,or tacked on with vintage buttons in the back.
