I like buying things in charity shops to use the fabric or buttons or embellishments in projects. I bought an original Breton top (not some copy) in a size 20 in my local charity shop and remade it into a top I now wear to death!
The black top is a cut up and dyed yellow hoodie which came as a freebie with a Spanish magazine costing 1 Euro 49… The colour doesn’t suit me but the farbic is really nice and soft. I cut the arms off and carefully cut all the seams open to create some raw edges. Then I dyed the cotton top black knowing that the polyester used for the seams would remain yellow. Very nice for layering and another favourite!
If it’s in your closet and it’s not getting worn, give it away or take it to a charity shop, or take the scissors to it and make it your own!
