Here's an experiment, to show you just how wildly versatile is a single piece of material.
I had purchased at my work a 1 1/3 yard piece of a double faced plaid cotton batiste, to use as a scarf.
When I got home and started to play with it I realized it would be a great example of what I mean about the astonishing flexibility of this apparel language I talk endlessly about. So, there isn't going to be much text here, just the images I shot this morning. Take a good look at them. Each one expresses something entirely different, though all that has changed is the usage to which that same piece of cloth has been put.
Try it yourself. You might just surprise yourself.
