Altered images – Going green


This is one I’ve had for a while.  LOVE the embroidery on the pocket.  Thought of making it into a skirt but look at that cool green frog closure and the nehru collar!  I undid the side seams, removed the pockets, tailored it to fit and sewed the pockets back on.  Ha, took longer to think about than it took to do it!
