A Colorful Saturday

Tube Top Italiano

Sometimes I just can’t wear clothes how they’re intended.  Today’s top was another kind donation from Heather who bought it at a museum.  Does anyone know the title and/or artist of this painting???? It’s driving me nuts that I can’t think of it!

What is this painting?????

Two things about this top weren’t working for me.  First, it was a little too big, and therefore not very flattering on me.  Second, long sleeves weren’t going to work on an almost 90 degree day!

Time for a quick no-sew refashion!  First, I pulled my arms through the neck hole like so.

Step 1!


Then, I tied the sleeves of the top around my neck to make a halter top!

Halter! Who goes there?

The back

I liked how tying the sleeves around my neck made the bust of the top have a sort of cowl neck look.  🙂


My newly refashioned top was perfect for a late afternoon/early evening Agora 11: Music and Visual Art Celebration!

My giant can of booze led me to an act of anarchy.
