Reader Opinion: Mexican Shirt

See this beauty?  Ha--- or maybe you don't think so?  
I got it when Simon and I were in Tijuana a few years ago and I've worn it maybe 2 times (a realization I had to face after cleaning out my closet a few days ago).  I love the embroidery on the sleeves and edges, but I'm not such a fan of the giant flowers that land on my stomach.  I also really like the general "peasanty" look and style.  
Here's the back (I've been tempted to wear it backwards with a button up sweater to hide the flowers on my back).

But since I don't wear it much, I was trying to think of another use for it.  Any ideas?  
Or maybe you think I should just wear it more often?  I have several ideas in my head, but want to see what the reader's opinions are.  
Surprise me!

I like it and would wear it. However, if that is not your style anymore, I would make a pillow out of it or a placemat that could be used as a centerpiece of a table, like a runner. You could also cut it apart and frame it.

I would never wear it but I think you could pull it off.

I like the cutting it apart and framing it idea. Cute!

I bet you could make a cute toddler dress out of that!

a purse or large tote would work wonderfully :) excited to see what you come up with!

How large is it? We need more details and perhaps a picture of you in it to accurately decide. However, if it's large, send it out to me and my baby belly. I will wear it and a headband and hemp sandals with cutoff jeans and name my child Flower.
