Don't touch it!!! It's awsome as is and I echo Soft's suggestions. a belt would be great. If it's too big you could dart it on bothe the front and back in between the embroidery details. I like the idea of it being a jacket as well...could it be opened?

taking cool mens trousers w/ stripes and buttons etc. and cutting it so the a** is a tube top and wear the back part in the front...closure buttons in the back-wear it over a t-shirt...wearing camisole shirts/or cool knit vests with a reversible pattern inside out over a button down. fraying the edges of shirts and sewing a little in from the edge so it doesn't unravel.

i discovered that VV Rouleaux has opened a shop in Glasgow - I bought some amazing ribbons & trims. I bought a ruffled black grossgrain ribbon and a blacl half velvet half raw silk ribbon that I am going to sew onto a v neck jersey. I also bought a navy & silvery white striped ribbon which I am going to sewn into pleats around the hem of a l/s navy top. I also bought a long piece of think black woven black/white striped fabric that I can use as a longish loose belt a la dries van noten... I am pleased. can't wait to take my mum there - she is going to love it!!!

VV Rouleaux is a beautiful shop, and it has such a wide range of trimmings for customising, but I find, as a student it is way out of any price range for simple customising, it's nice for a sneaky look round though

FFF - it can mount up I suppose. The ribbons I got were all around 3.95 per metre. I got about 1.5 metres of each.

softgrey - I have tried to get a photo of the trousers but its hard to get the detail really. I will try again tonight.

It does open in the front but only right below my breast area.
