psychedelic swirly mod barkcloth top! (all my favorite adjectives...)
this is a halter top with a bralette construction. fully adjustable from sizes small to large.
i made this top from the most amazing barkcloth muumuu that i found in an antiques store. the cloth is SO colorful, soft, and beautiful.
the top is fully lined with the same fabric.
BIG PLUS: the top is reversible, with gold grommets on one side and silver grommets on the other side, so you can match your outfit to your jewelry!
Barkcloth is a very ancient type of textile, and was once common in Asia, Africa, Indonesia, and the Pacific. The cloth is made primarily from trees of the Moraceae family, including Broussonetia papyrifera, Artocarpus altilis, and Ficus natalensis. The fibrous inner bark is soaked and beaten into sheets and dried in the sun.
*the top is fully adjustable because it laces up the back.
*waist: 28 inches at its smallest.
*length: 14 inches from the top of the breast piece to the hem, but this is adjustable also, so it can be longer or shorter.
*bust: B to C cup
This is made from antique fabric and may have signs of wear such as small, light stains or tiny holes. I do my very best to insure that each piece is as close to perfect as possible, but please remember that they came from saris that have been worn and loved by one or more women. If there is something that is unacceptable to you, that I missed, I will gladly take the piece back.
I purchase saris from a single mother in Delhi, who runs her own business selling vintage and antique fabrics. She acquires these saris from women during trips to remote villages throughout India. In this way, she provides a much-needed income to these villages and to herself and her son. It's very cool being a part of this network!
