this is a sweet pretty pink crop cardi.. gorgeous pretty baby pink colour.. in a acrylic/wool mix
the neckline is a low round shape, and the sleeves are 3/4..
button front with gorgeous large pink vintage pearl buttons..
Ive trimmed the sleeves with wide gathered lace, and added a cotton lace casing with a ribbon tie... the same lace is one of the layers on the hemline.. over the top of a devine vintage satin embroidered edging.. very old, very pretty pale apricoty colour, with tiny roses, and leaves.... this trim was such a find...! there is also a casing of cotton lace at the hemline and a seam binding ribbon tie, so you can pull the ribbon in to tighten and create a nipped in look at the hemline..
on the front of this cardi, Ive added a row of satin ribbon roses, pearls, vintage buttons and crochet bits and pieces... on the other side, scraps of lace, velvet ribbons, and one of my beautiful signature Vintage Kitty rose girl patches...
on the back is a glorious array of roses, on cotton, satin ribbon roses, laces, crushed mesh with roses, mother of pearl buttons.. lots of layers of scraps and raw edges... I love to use lovely raggy and raw edged pieces for a shabby chic look..
lots of olde world charm and very pretty...
this cardi looks great layered over any of my Vintage kitty camis or tunics, with bloomers or with your favourite jeans and cowboy boots...
soft pink and scrummy...
