Because I Was Sketching In Church or REFASHION TUTORIAL: Scarf Edition

Last Sunday, I was sitting in services and trying to pay attention when an Idea came to mind.  I immediately sketched it out on my planner.  Sparkle Jane leaned over and asked, “What is that?”  I said, “We’ll call it inspiration.”

The inspiration applied to this, an oversized Hawaiian shirt.

A friend gave it to me because it was an expensive brand and silk and “you can do something with it.”

Guided by the sketch, I cut the back out of the shirt and ironed it flat.

A little digging in the big pile of junk yielded some vintage lace that I never thought I would use.  I don’t even know why I kept it.  But, it was the perfect color.  I wonder how long this lace waited to be put to use?

I drew a rough circle, then a smaller circle about 6 or 6-1/2″ in.  I drew tapers that overlapped, so the ends would be pointed.

Cutting out didn’t take long, and left a smaller circle-type shape in the middle.

I did a narrow hem on the inside and outside curves.

Gathered the lace.

And attached it.

Ta-dah!  A scarf!

I don’t really have anything to wear it with, so it will probably be a present, but it was a fun experiment I can see trying again.

  1. you are so clever with accessories…I love that…silk is so hard to sew on—for me—and I admire the work you put in it..it turned out beautifully…and you will find something that it will be beautiful with!!!!
