Quickie tutorial on how to turn a scarf into a top.
I've mentioned creating a bunch of things lately, and here's the scarf top I whipped out. This can be done in one evening, and it looks great!
|Making a scarf top.
First, take a long scarf that is wider than your torso, and extra long, so you can make sleeves. This scarf measured 66".
|I folded the scarf in half, and measured *
This will make the sleeves. The two halves remaining, I hemmed at the top, and left room for a neck hole.
|Unfold the piece you cut off, and cut it in half lengthwise.
Hem both sides, and place them on the scarf halves you've already hemmed. Stitch the sleeves on.
|The scarf top, finished.
The sleeves were stitched shut after I placed them on the scarf halves, and then I stitched the sides closed. I used a basic boat neck for this, and left it loose-fitting. Don't you love the fringe?
|And of course, with a belt.
I'm going to enjoy this top a great deal. I hope you guys enjoy the quick tutorial.
