My husband gave me this beautiful mohair top a number of years ago.
I am hoping that we have some great designer minds amongst our readers who could provide suggestions on what to do with this treasured item.
Due to its firm silk lining and more or less straight cut it is uncomfortable to wear.
I love the colours and textures of the yarns used in the weave and the immaculate workmanship which prevented me from cutting into it or throwing it out.
Something has to happen now, I really would like to wear it, and this is where I am stuck!
The neckline is too wide at the shoulder, whatever I wear underneath is showing.
So far I have worn a scarf to cover up, but it is actually quite a warm top and times to wear it like this do not occur often.
This lead to the idea to cut the front and make a jacket.
But, what do I do with the neckline then?
It still needs something, does it call for a collar?
Do I knit one?
How do I continue down the front to tie everything together?
Let me know if you have any ideas which could come to the rescue!
