The Linen Lovelies - Upcycled Vintage Embroidered Tops


I love stitching little summer tops from vintage hand embroidered linens in my stash and I have been wearing this one a lot this summer.

I used a camisole sewing pattern as the basis for this and needed to improve the fit under the arms so I added a couple of rows of shirring here.

These two tops use vintage tray cloths to make the collars.
