That's a great idea! And these look great on me and I can wear them as maternity for a long while too.
I love this idea!
This is so happening today! I just pulled out an extra long purple scarf and might try and squeeze out a dress.
I am SO doing this over my holiday weekend. I already have 2 beautiful lucky brand scarves that I am going to do this to. They are too big and bulky as a scarf and they are perfect for this. Thanks a million for the idea!
How would you recommend finishing off the raw edges of the neck slit to prevent fraying? I though maybe bias binding, but it might be a bit tricky at the very tip of the slit. What would you suggest?
I love it! I am keeping my eye for some fabrics or a big scarf next thrift shopping and maybe I can make one like this. :)Adin B
I have a top very similar to this, but the neck is slit horizontally so if falls across your collar bone rather than being a V neck. It's also stitched down the sides below the elasticated waist so that you don't have to wear another top under it, but the edges are all floaty & summery.I tried to follow the same style with a dress and the top half looks great - but the bottom half a little odd!Hey ho, practice makes perfect I guess!
@agoodwardrobe.comTell me if you do. I'll post about it.
@Angela OsbornYou could fold it over twice and sew. Or use bias binding. Or you could sew a trim to the edge. Depending on the scarf a pompom trim might look neat.
@Angela OsbornAnother idea to avoid raw edges completely would be to take two scarves and sew them together leaving the center unsewn for a neck hole.
@Kathleen FrancesThanks Kathleen. Yeah, I think using two scarves is a great option to prevent fraying. And a trim could still be applied - I really like your idea of a pompom trim! :)
Sucha great idea, and so easy to do!Jonna xx
I was inspired by this dress as well and made a version for myself and my daughter. If you cut two rectangles and use the selvedge, you cut down on how much hemming you have to do. No tutorial, but a funny picture of a matching family:http://shisomama.wordpress.com/2011/05/15/fashion-show-sunday-a-short-story-of-stitchery/
Seems like a really cute pillowcase could do the trick too!
