Dress To Scarf Refashion

Well, we made it back to Florida and it is going to be sometime I think before we get fully adjusted.  But I do have a quick post for you today.

Remember the cute little floral summer dress that I decided to let go of?  The dress was a little too short for me and I didn’t feel comfortable in it anymore, but, I loved the fabric and decided to turn it into a scarf.

And here it is!

All I had to do was cut the skirt off of the dress underneath the waistband.  I was left with a very jagged edge down the one side so I measured from the other side over and created a straight even line then trimmed off the jagged edge.  Then all I had to do was fold the raw end under twice, press, pin and sew a straight line, creating a little hem.

This will work with any dress or skirt that doesn’t have a zipper or pockets in the way.
