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. 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 * 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. 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 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?

I'm going to enjoy this top a great deal. I hope you guys enjoy the quick tutorial.
