Every so often, a lone potato will find it's way out of the bag, rolling away from it's family, to sigh alone in the dark recesses of your pantry.
What can you do when, months later, you discover this straggler, wrinkled and unpalatable?

Don't throw it away...

This was inspired by many a trend: geometric print, cropped and asymmetrical, drapey fabric... that all comes together to create what shall henceforth be known as...
