An easy summer tank created to showcase the craft of generations past. Each Hanky Top is created using vintage embroidered linens and is constructed to maintain the integrity of the original embroidery design. A truly one-of-a-kind heirloom piece.
*NOTE: this specific style contains two small patches on the lower front where the fabric has been mended.
Front created from a vintage embroidered napkin, back created from a vintage lace curtain, and all other fabric used is scraps from the Princessa and Scrunchie tops. Natural woven fibers.
Fully functioning and adjustable tie straps.
Elastic top and bottom.

All materials are thoroughly cleaned and inspected before the construction phase. However, due to the secondhand nature of the fabric, there may be slight imperfections/discolorations on the surface.
