Scrap Top 5
Scrap Top 5
The scrap top collection! Simple silhouette tops with fun designs made from left over scrap fabric. The design is created based on what scraps + colors are available at the time. The scrap collection is helping achieve zero waste. 100% of my clothing scraps get used or donated to other projects -I am really loving using them with these tops! This top is boxy and cropped with slightly wider arm holes. Plain on the backside.
This batch of Scrap Top 5 (the number is more so about the design) has a pink raw silk line above a ginger linen arc. The fabric for the top is an off white linen blend, it’s got a creamy hue. Very soft.
These come in S/M and M/L. I will be making them made to order until I run out of the scraps (for this one it’s just the pink silk that is limited). I have enough for 1 more in the creamy white fabric (as seen in photos), and then at least 2-3 more in regular white fabric. Below you will have the option to select which color linen and then also which size (you will be prompted to fill in S/M or M/L) at check out.
On that note, if you like the design or color palette of a specific scrap top and it wasn’t made in your size, you want some kind of adjustment to the measurements, or if it’s just sold out and you want a similar designed one - please reach out through the contact link on my site! I would be happy to take a look at available fabric scraps and let you know if I can make a similar top (or can take requests for other colors in the same design!) Please keep in mind scrap pieces are limited and random but I do have a lot of scraps and sizes of the staple linen colors I use (ginger, black, red, mustard, oatmeal, denim, gray) and have plenty of those readily available to use.
CARE: I always recommend hand or spot washing handmade clothing. With the scrap collection I highly recommend this option and hand washing only for as long as possible. The scraps are sewn on like an applique on top of the white linen and are more delicate because of that (especially with different colors and fabrics). If you ever need to machine wash take extra care and make sure to use a gentle setting in cold water and always air/hang to dry.
