Thanks, everyone!

I was playing around with it it, and also found a way to make it into a shrug (with a gathered back).  As soon as I can take decent pictures, I'll add that style, too...

... it's basically a 34" X 18" rectangle crocheted onto an 80" 'tie'.  Worn open in the back, as a baby-doll, the ties wrap back around to the front and tie under the bust.  With the slit in the front, the top corners cross over each other and tie around the back of the neck. 

Thanks for confirming my assumption, c-m.  Looking forward to seeing how you turn it into a shrug!

hee hee....I tried it as an over-the-shoulder capelet (over both shoulders, really, then tied in front).  It wasn't quite long enough, but didn't look terrible.  This is turning out to be a very versatile piece.

Hey waterbaby-

It's a little difficult to describe, but I basically folded it in half lengthwise, then took the straps and wove them through the mesh along the bottom of the opposite side, toward the middle.  The edges make the armholes, and then you sort of cinch it a little in back to gather, and tied it in a pretty bow.  Aww.  I had no idea it would make a shrug while I was making it, but it's actually kinda my favorite of the three...
