Apologies for the lack of proper 'before' picture, I didn't take one myself and the Marks and Spencer website has that stupid 'zoom in' function where you can't download the picture itself. Stupid M&S, not letting me steal their photos for free... Hopefully you get the idea with the tiny picture though! I really liked the classic floppy-brimmed straw hat but wasn't a fan of the raffia flowers, luckily they were held on with the minimum of thread, so it was a simple job to cut them off and replace them with this scarf.
A few stitches in the relevant places to stop the scarf slipping off and we have a winner! I'm a big fan of make overs, an easy and thrifty way to update your look and reuse old clothes. Perfect timing for the lovely warm sunshine Edinburgh has finally been enjoying!
