Paisley with Purpose - Dress Reworked into Top

reworked paisley top and brooch by karen vallerius

A few years ago I reworked a boring vintage cotton paisley dress into this 1950s style retro top.  I love the colourway of this paisley and like to wear the top with jeans.  Of course, there were a few smaller scraps left over from the project (and of course I cannot throw any textile pieces away!) and this week I made some flower brooches, one of them shown above.

Happy stitching everyone x
