So I changed this ugly t-shirt I never wanted to wear into something more wearable lately, and when I removed the ribbon around the neck, I found out that it actually looked pretty nice viewed on its own.
Perfect to become a nice choker!

what a lovely button, and it is so fun when you can salvage parts of ugly clothing into pretty things!

Glad you like it. :-)
I used the part that seamed the neckline - though the pretty "lace" around the edges wasnt even visible in the original T-Shirt.
I find it hard to explain... but after I ripped open the seam of the neckline, I was left with this.

Such a creative idea! And the button finishes it off perfectly. I have a strip of coloured lace which I've kept from a top which has morphed into something else, so now I have an idea of what to do with it. Thanks!
