risky business

Sophisticated and daring...

AND I love it! Anything that reminds me in the least of a dalmatian has me sold these days. Those irregular spots get me every time.

Yesterday, while I was thrifting I found a seemingly similar enough top that I bought for $1. It even had shoulder pads! :) It's white with brown spots and smaller scale -- not nearly as fabulous as the one shown above. My intentions were to cut it up and make a scarf. Now I'm thinking that I should take it apart and sew it back together to make it a smaller size. That would be a huge undertaking, and I'm really not the sewing savvy girl that I wish I was. The shirt is literally like a 2XL, so there's no "making it work." Whatever I do, it will involve a little risk taking which is okay. After all, it was only $1!

What do y'all think I should do with it?

Sew it girl. I just did a little surgery on a top I found at TJ Maxx, and I am so glad I took the risk. Go ahead a do some work on it and just leave the extra fabric (don't cut it out) then if you don't like it you can take out the stitching and make your scarf.

I think you should take it apart and make it smaller! It's really cute material!
