By this time of year I expected we’d have had at least one snow/ice storm but instead we’re having the sunniest, driest run of weather since last spring. The temperatures are still pretty warm, but starting to cool off. I know that when winter does hit it will really hit, so to be prepared I thought I’d make some more scarves.
I’m not usually a scarf person. I like them but I hate to buy them. But they are a great accessory for the colder weather, go well with all of those cardigans, so I thought I’d throw together a few from what I have on hand.
The first one was from this dress:
When I say I like to keep it simple, I really mean it. Also, I may be a lazy sewist. I cut the skirt off of this dress, sewed a hem around the raw edge, and voila! One giant scarf:
The next one went so quickly I forgot to get a before picture. For this one I just cut off the bottom detail from another dress:
The next one actually took a little bit of work. I started with this dress:
I cut the back away from the front and laid it out with right sides together. I cut it out a little and resewed the two long pieces together at the ends.
I like the length of this one, but not the big seam up the middle. I might rework that sometime in the future. Now I want to find more dresses to cut up for scarves! I may be a little on the obsessive side. 😉
