this is a very pretty Vintage Kitty cami top... batternburg lace gorgeousness...

I have a few of these tops coming .. from my Vintage Kitty, Lily Hannah range.. named after my late great grand mother... .

(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 piece has been upcycled from a vintage cami slip in pale ecru.. very stretchy.. with a soft embossed floral pattern in off white... and a gorgeous vintage embroidered batternburg lace afternoon tea cloth...

where the cami bodice joins the skirt part , there is a channel of cream cotton lace, threaded with a ecru seam binding ribbon tie... this can be drawn in for a nipped in look or left looser for a more drapey style..

on the bodice Ive added one of my raggy roses, some pretty scraps of guipere laces, some doily pieces, some threads of fine pearls and gorgeouness..

the bottom part of this top has a hanky hem shape, the batternburg ribbon lace detail creates the actual hemline shape and is intricate and beautiful... and Ive scattered a few satin ribbon roses here and there.. .. but the most beautiful detail is in the cloth itself... just lovely..

a beautiful, delicate and pretty vintage cami top.... you know for sure you are getting a true piece of shabby chic gorgeousness with this upcycled vintage kitty creation...

this beautiful top looks lovely over bloomers, or jeans, or with tights or even over one of my vintage kitty rosebud skirts....

please check the measurements to make sure it will fit you.. sizes 'labels' vary so much, I find measurements the best to go by...
(mannequin is about 6/8us, with approx Acup) this top is a bit loose on this model as you can see in the pics...

across the bust ,(underarm to underarm) unstretched (still not being able to take into consideration the fullness of the cups) one side is about 16 1/2 inches (42cm), this is lying flat unstretched.. so its not absolutely accurate.. there is more fabric you can measure in the bust, and the fabric is very stretchy so is quite flexible in fit.. B cup would be fine..
at the base of the bodice where the tie is , lying flat at widest measurement is 17 inches (43 cm) you can pull this in tighter for a nipped in look for shape..


top of bust to hem at longest point excluding straps(straps are adjustable) 29 inches (73.5 cm) and 21 inches (53.5 cm) at shortest


NB:
*washing instructions.., hand wash in cold and lay flat or on a hanger to dry..

*this cami has vintage 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..

shabby chic.. vintage Kitty.. batternburg, crochet, roses, lace, cami dress.. ooak.. MEDIUM
