My paisley shirt refashion, submitted to Project Recycled

Which started its life looking like this..

$2, an op shop purchase last year that I'd finally got around to doing something with

I cut both sleeves, made one sleeve into a beaded necklace, the other into an obi style belt, and ruffle flowers on the font of the tunic

The front of the original paisley shirt, is now buttons down the back.
