I got this serape about 5 years ago at a thrift store for about 3 to 5 dollars. I held on to it becasue I love the bright colors on the embroidery. This is vintage probably from the 60's or 70's. I have seen similar ones on the internet for between 175 dollars and 200 dollars. It said it is made out of wool so I had hopped it would felt and make a nice thick fabric to make a pencil skirt or suit skirt out of.
May still make the skirt but it would not be as warm as I had hoped it would be becasue it did not felt at all trust me I tried several times. So here is my question is it a bad idea to cut up this. I know it has a ton of embroidery in it and I know I will never wear it as a serape. I would wear it as a skirt. Should I feel bad about cutting into this piece of fabric and in that process tossing some of the embroidery. I really would like some feedback on this. There are more photos of this on flickr sorry I had a hard time getting a good photo of it.
