I bought this beautiful scarf in Paris several years ago as a souvenir and had always received questions and compliments when I wore it as it was nothing like what we have here in Maine. But, it's BIG and difficult to wear for a short person. I gave it quite a bit of thought before refashioning it since it was unique. However, I took the plunge an cut it over to match the dimensions of another favorite scarf that I wear often.
This is the result and a much more wearable piece. Phew! I feel 10 pounds lighter!
