Rome Wasn't Built In A Day!! But This Top Was! Www.Vintagethrifter51.com

Once again I thrifted some vintage souvenir travel scarves and these two are from Rome.  I did the usual stitching across the shoulders and down the sides and in less than 20 minutes I have a new top.

Unfortunately on the one scarf there were two small holes so I used some fusable web and ironed it over the back of the holes and repaired them.

Here is the back of the repairs.

And here is the front.  When I wear my new top, which has already had an outing, the holes are no longer obvious.  I am very happy with my new vintage souvenir scarf top, and am happy to add it to my collection.  Cheers, Michele. Check out my blog Here!
