This summer I bought a super cute, but super cheap, dress from WalMart that slowly but surely fell to pieces with each wear. It finally got to the point where I just couldn’t wear it anymore with all of the holes it kept getting, so I got ready to toss it. Then I remembered seeing an adorable scarf my cousin made out of a T-shirt, so I figured I’d try it out.
My scarf was really easy to make because the dress I cut apart already had all of the pieces. I simply cut the bottom ruffle off of the dress and the braided straps off the top, and started to stitch it back together.
The ruffled bottom of the dress was large enough to wrap around twice, and the braided straps went around the scarf one time perfectly.
I removed the excess thread from each piece of te dress, then got to sewing. With the ruffled part looped twice, I stitched the two pieces together where they crossed over one another. Then, I added the braid to the same intersection so all of the pieces came together in the same spot.
When everything was sewn together, I cut a small rectangle of the jersey fabric out of the remaining dress and sewed it around the scarf so you can’t see the stitching.
Then, I was finished! Too easy! The best part… my scarf looks adorable with my Ravens tee 🙂
