A Tale of Two Tops

vintage style pinafore tops by karen vallerius

The pinafore-esque theme to my stashbusting continues and the latest makes are two little tops (could be worn as prairie inspired pinnies) created from sections cut from the skirt of an 80s Laura Ashley cotton lawn frock with embroidered tray cloth collars.

The top on the right is pieced using a cute check in pink and grey saved from a shirt, and more Laura Ashley scraps for the pocket.
