My good buddy, Lisa is teaching in China for a year. One of the things she mentions about Chinese food is that there is very little waste involved. You can read more about her foodie adventures here. :) They try to use every part of the animal or vegetable. I like this approach, as I hate wasting anything. When I made my jacket for Day 178, I knew I’d have to do something with the bottom part. :)
I decided to turn it into a top! I tightened it up a bit at the top with my favorite pin, cinched the waist with one of my many sashes, and pulled a bunch of the fabric through to make it nice and blousy!
I wore my new top for a fun night of Karaoke!
