this is one of a number of Vintage Kitty upcycled vintage linen and cotton overtops, shirts, and jackets Im creating for this summer and for layering in the colder months....

this is one looovely light weight cotton creation... a very pale pink..

made from a fine cotton shirt.. with lace inserts and fine pin tucking... soft and beautiful to wear..!

full of charm and totally embellished.. loads of detail.. too much to list but you wont be disappointed ...

cropped and chopped, lots of raw edges and fraying linens.. gorgeous and shabby chic.. a small oriental style collar, with lace..

the sleeves are 3/4 length and pleated randomly , with raggy edged laces added and satin ribbon roses... embellished with different laces on each sleeve...

the front does up with tiny buttons.. and theres a scattering of satin ribbon roses... and some hand dyed doily pieces appliqued on the front lace panels... very pretty...

the front is covered with scraps and bits and pieces of vintage lace, satin roses, and one piece of vintage linen with an embroidered red rose...

the back of this shirt has one large pretty cross stitched doily or tray cloth, some hand dyed crochet doily pieces, pretty pink guipere lace, and one of my Vintage Kitty signature rose girl patches.. along with more satin ribbon roses...

the lace casing at the join between the bodice and the ruched hem parts holds the ice pink seam binding ribbon, that you can pull in tight to create a nipped in look, or leave loose for a more overtop kind of look... or open jacket style...

the hemline is a beautiful array of gorgeousness..! embellished with loads of different pieces.. some raw edged, some laces, some upcycled vintage crochet doilies,..rescued pieces from other Vintage Kitty creations you might recognise the fabrics, .. the hemline will be different lengths all the way around, but only by a few inches here and there...

this overtop looks great over my Vintage Kitty tunics and camis, with bloomers, jeans or tights.. loads of different looks.....

the main fabric is cotton and not stretchy , so please check measurements carefully.. this is the only one like it and it can not be repeated...

this shirt is a great size... , measured laid flat:
underarm to underarm across the front 25 inches (63.5cm)
side to side at the lace casing join (near waist) is about the same...
shoulder to casing is 17 inches (43cm)
shoulder to hemline is about 26 inches... (66 cm)

I find a good way to check if it will fit , is to compare the measurements to something else you already own , by measuring the item unstretched and laying flat... thats much easier than trying to measure ourselves and getting it right..!

*washing instructions.., hand wash in cold and lay flat to dry.. or on a soft hanger in the shade..

*this shirt/overtop has vintage and hand dyed components.. please wear gently.. imperfections, tiny marks or repairs, if any are part of the charm of wearing beautiful re-created garments.. please know that I would not offer anything that I wouldnt wear myself..
