(Note the repeatative use of "Scrap")
I love this top and I get so many wonderful comments when I wear it. The base of the top was made from a fitted tablecloth with crocheted trim. There were pleats that leanded themselves well to being incorporated into the design.
The lace for the bodice was made by criss-crossing and top stitching lace drapery fabric samples my mother gave me. Lace flowers are actually quite easy to make. They are trimmed with a few pieces of ribbon scraps.
I covered the tunic part of the top with roughly finished scraps cut from a lace shower curtain.

Oh, it's all machine washable, although I like to hand wash it to keep the lace looking pretty.
