I undid the stitches that Julia had sewn and transformed the shirt into a scarf. I tempered the masculine implication of the button down shirt by bringing out the feminine qualities of the garment. The manner of her death, strangulation, is implied by the function of the scarf. The reason for her death, attempted rape, motivates my choice to highlight the masculine/ feminine connotations of this object.
