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 soft creation... Its one of my favourites one so far..

made from a lightweight soft cream cotton vintage shirt covered in a pattern of roses ...... 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.. the collar is embellished with a trio of satin ribbon roses and buds on each side...

the sleeves are 3/4 length and each have been embellished with different laces and gathered mesh..

the front does up with sweet mother of pearl buttons...and Ive added a row of pearl buttons for decoration... . very pretty...
the front is covered with scraps and bits and pieces of vintage crochet, laces, buttons, roses... all sorts of goodies in shades of pinks and creams to compliment the shirt... just too much detail to mention.... which makes it all better when you open the parcel ... !

the back of this shirt has one large pretty embroidered doily or tray cloth, some hand dyed crochet doily pieces, and one of my Vintage Kitty signature rose girl patches.. along with more satin ribbon roses... and lots of other gorgeousness...

the lace casing at the join between the bodice and the ruched hem parts holds the cream 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 appliqued doilies and tray cloths...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... so dreamy..!!

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

the fabric is soft 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 24 inches (61cm)
side to side at the lace casing join (near waist) is about the same...
shoulder to casing is 16 inches (40.5cm)
shoulder to hemline is between 24 - 28 inches , it varies between pieces... (61 - 71cm)

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..
