Just Like That, I am Back

 If I said I was back, would you believe me?

Okay so it probably needed a little extra room pre-baby too, but lets not talk about that ;). I am just figuring out how to refashion it. I was thinking of adding some ruffles, or rosettes made from the scarf, but I am not quite sure.
