The rehab of the African textile into a tunic was ALMOST finished at the Mindful Mending workshop...
The next day, I used my mending momentum and took the materials to Otis with me -- I utilized the nice, big, EMPTY table in the Otis Fashion Dept conference room:
Then we had LOTS of rain, so I couldn't hang it outside to air out on the clothesline.
FINALLY, the weather cooperated.
I found online a suggestion to soak the fabric in vinegar to help remove the odor.
It worked a charm.
And then yesterday I was able to wear it to work:
|I liked the look of the tunic over another tunic in my initial selfies, so I tried it over my denim button up.|
|The Fluevog Enthusiasts played along perfectly.|
