Cloth have up-cyled a plain dress with a stylish ‘in’ peplum using Liberty Kingly Cord – LKC03276157B – Mirando

Cloth magazine Tee upcycle

An incident with the iron, gave Cloth magazine this idea to re-vamp a damaged Tee using John Kaldor French Crepe – JK2204/4.  Would work equally well with any of the Liberty lawns or lighterweight Liberty jerseys
