What do you make out of soft book fabric for Beatrix Potter's 'The Tale of Tom Kitten'?

You make a top, of course!



I couldn't bring myself to cut through any of the panels, but I really wanted to wear this amazing fabric as clothing. So I didn't cut the panels, as you can see:


and made a tied shirt-top-thing Grin

I wasn't sure if I'd gone too far into crazy town, but I think it mostly works, in a unique sort of way I guess Tongue



Thanks for looking

I would have never thought to use that fabric to make a top, but it turned out really well.  It's really pretty!

You realize, of course, that some people will come up and try to read your top? (=

Scholars and artists...differ most importantly in the way their knowledge is come by.  Scholars get theirs with conscientious thoroughness along projected lines of logic; poets...stick to nothing deliberately, but let what will stick to them like burrs where they walk in the fields.

Oh I don't think I could cut them either and this is a great solution.  But it might work as a skirt too.

hmm I guess it would Cheesy It is just a square with a circular hole and drawstring after all.
