Another freebie summer top

You may remember the summer I made seven tops without spending any money on fabric. Unfortunately,  most of those tops are now uncomfortably tight. While I work on my weight, I am enjoying wearing big tops that cover everything. 

Yesterday I discovered an old sarong that a dear friend sent me from India. I wore it as a swimsuit cover-up in Africa more than twenty years ago. It was a great big tube in the softest cotton with a cute elephant border. Check out the before and afters below.

I showed the finished project to DD, who loves elephants,  and she wants the top, so I think I'll send it to her and look for another promising garment to refashion.
