A couple of years ago, my sister went on holiday to Russia. Because she travelled around the country on her own – visiting Moscow, Novgorod and St Petersburg – space in her rucksack was at a premium. So I was very flattered when she brought me home a gift of a fabric necklace bought from a Russian market.
There was only one problem. “I wish I’d bought one for myself,” she said. It’s taken me a couple of years, but I finally delved into my collection of fabric scraps. After all, who doesn’t love upcycling? I chose pinks and pastel shades as they’re my sister’s favourites, and made this Christmas gift for her. I just know she’s going to love it.
This necklace would cheerfully complement Modcloth’s Local Hangout Top, as it’s a simple and elegant garment. The colourful necklace would add a touch of colour and fun, but still keeps things appropriate for my sister’s job as a teacher.
