Recycled Tablecloth Apron Top

Artist Statement: This bright and unusual top is made from a cute vintage 1970's tablecloth. I used the fabric diagonally, to make sure the pattern is at its most beautifull and the fabric moves more fluidly and fits comfortably. Please note that the colors of the fabrics are deeper and darker than in the pictures! This fabric has some signs of use, the color has faded just a bit and there are some vaque lines at the bottom part, you can see it in the pictures. This top has small coordinating lace at the top. The tunnels are made of a vintage pillowcase with little mod flowers and the back is made of a vintage fabric with the same kind of flowers. The applique is made from new fabric and is put on with a satin stich, so there will be no loose threads. The strap runs through tunnels so everything is adjustable.
