Kite Top Vintage Cross Stitch & Crochet 14


Usually it’s the bold and bright vintage prints that get all the attention. So with these new Kite Tops I still wanted to use vintage, but do something different and highlight a more romantic, delicate look with this beautiful cross stitch and applique. The workwomanship is just beyond incredible and I love giving these old treasures a new lease on life!
This style has become a crowd favourite because it solves a little everyday dressing dilemma. Are you ever hunting for a top that isn’t tight but finishes at just the right spot on the waist so you don’t need to tuck it in but it’s not too loose and shapeless if you don’t? Well this design solves all those little niggles! 

The unique kite shape offers looseness across the shoulders, bust and tummy for an elegant yet relaxed look, which then slightly draws in to a flat front. The back has a softly billowing effect created by a little elastic along the bottom. This makes it ideal to wear over slim fitted bottoms like a straight or a line skirt, tailored pants, jeans or shorts. But it can also balance out a full or voluminous skirt without having to wear something tight on top.

It’s a style that is super comfortable and versatile for both casual wear or work. It accommodates a variety of body shapes, including bust sizes and whilst being shorter than our other tops, it isn't cropped, finishing just on the hip bones. If you have our Lucy dress you might notice a similar cut to the neckline and sleeve.

One of a kind. As always, handmade ethically in Sydney.

Cotton. Genuine vintage fabric in excellent preloved condition. Handwash.

SIZING & MEASUREMENTS

* NOTE * This is running true to size in that everyone who has tried it on is still their usual size and it's consistent with our other garments. However as it is a more structured fabric than the usual one most of the Kite Tops are made from, it does feel a little smaller and doesn't have the same floppy drape.

Model is average height with big bust wearing size 12. 

Sizing is average to generous and To check your size, lay flat a favourite top and run a tape measure across the garment (not something stretchy) and compare your measurements to these below.
