And about the refashion yesterday... I forgot to note that the strap I used around the neck was the elastic edging I cut off at the top off the original piece. It had a serged edge, so I ran it through my serger again to "catch" the raw edge I had from cutting it off. You could use a zig-zag or cut the excess fabric completely off... depends upon your item. I cut it the length I needed and sewed it on. Because it is stretchy it will stretch over the head and nothing extra (i.e. buttons, snaps, ties) is needed.
