WHAT'S BETTER THAN A SHIRT YOU CAN WEAR TWO WAYS?
It all started with a fourth grade girl who wanted to make a flowy vest. She took one of her dad's old shirts and cut it up. Little did she know that her dad's shirts were BIG. Disappointed, she threw the the vest into her "failure" pile, never wanting to set eyes on it again. Years later, she found herself cleaning up the mother all sewing crap messes, only to discover the "vest". Inspired, she sewed up the front, pinned on a brooch, and BAM, she had a new shirt. Was it fate? No one knows.....
