I purchased this top at Anthropologie in the fall, and I love it. The fabric is very thin, so I can comfortably layer it and the long sleeves keep me warm when it's just slightly cool out.

But it got a hole, due to the mutliple washings and the delicacy of the fabric - right there on the right side, just a few inches from the hem - can you see it? Well, it felt very conspicuous to me and I decided I had to do something about it.

I dug through my "take to Goodwill" bag, and found a cream colored knit top that I cut up, and pinned to the top, covering the hole. My machine isn't awesome with knits, but it worked out just fine and looks great!

Feeling very crafty and productive lately - painted the hallway on a whim this morning. I guess I have the Spring bug!
