Fashion Inspiration: {DIY Scarf Dress}

{isn't this DIY scarf dress absolutely gorgeous?... I have always loved scarves and love wearing halter tops in summer from scarves... now with this ingenious DIY, I can also put my scarves to another use and wear them as a dress... love it!}


{...to begin with start with approximately two 31" square size scarves and pin together...next, create an hour glass shape (portioned to your body and wide enough to slip in and out of); the hourglass shape is not sewn in straight (vertical) alignment with the sides of the scarves ~ instead, it is placed at a slight (left-hand) bias. this is important to establishing the asymmetric effect of the finished product... sew together...}


{...mark on both sides of the dress (either with thread or tailor's chalk) where your straps will go.... plan on placing them approximately 10" apart using either your grommets or a needle & thread... attach 2 chain straps (it's up to you whether these match or not)... the shorter strap (to be worn on the right) should measure about 8.5" long; the longer strap (to be worn on the left) should measure about 12-13" long}

{finished product should look like the photograph below...pay attention to how off-center the straps are ~ this placement is paramount to achieving the correct drape...}


{all photographs and (more detailed) instructions taken from here...}

Weekend Inspiration: {Flowers}

{hoping your weekend is as lovely as mine is so far... spent early Saturday morning leisurely sipping coffee from my new 24-carat French press coffee-maker, while pursuing the internet and listening to great music, then a bit of gardening and am now ready to have a healthy salad, vegan pâté with whole wheat baguette and a crisp glass of rosé wine! {p.s. as always, appreciate greatly all your lovely comments during the week!!} Have a great day!}
