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

(I love raw edges, frayed linen and lace.. so you will see raw edges on most of my LILY HANNAH and VINTAGE KITTY garments.. it lends itself to that gorgeous faded glory look that I love...)

this is one looovely stretch cardi creation...

made from an oatmeal coloured firm stretch knit cotton cardi made in New Zealand.. an an upcycled grungy tea dyed batternburg cloth....
full of charm and totally embellished.. loads of detail.. too much to list but you wont be disappointed ...

the neckline is edged with a scraps of crochet edging I rescued from a selection of vintage tea cloths and doilies...I added one of my raggy roses with some scrappy mesh to one side to create a fixed brooch... two simply gorgeous vintage hand stitched doilies on the front and covered buttons to close.. also at the point where the knit bodice meets the skirt part, there is hand dyed cotton lace which ends in a tie at the front.. (it also creates a space behind the lace to add elastic or seambinding or lace ribbon to gather this waist in if you are a smaller size... . )

the sleeves are half knit, half cotton and raggy raw edged laces... then high on the cuff is an eyelet lace with seam biding ribbon where you can tighten to create a billow effect in the sleeve....a gorgeously romantic look....

this coat has a gorgeously detailed battenburg lace and cotton/linen cloth skirt.. very full and very grungy.. with a tea stained vintagey look...

I think this is my favorite coat so far.. I love the raw edges and the vintage laces and crochet... its a great natural colour too so its great for layering over any of my vintage kitty tunics and bloomers... looks fab with jeans and cowboy boots for that cowgirl rock chic kind of look with a bit of stevie nicks mixed in...

the bodice fabric is firm but has stretch, please check measurements carefully.. this is the only one like it and it can not be repeated...

measured laid flat unstretched:
underarm to underarm across the front 20 inches (51cm)
side to side at the 'waist' where the bodice joins the skirt part is about 22 inches (56 cm)...
shoulder to waist is about 15 inches (38 cm), shoulder to hem is about 34 inches (86.5 cm), give or take an inch or two either way for a bit of a wavey hemline with the lace pattern a bit up and down.....

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..

*this coat 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..
