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!
What I love about this scarf is that it is so lightweight. It’s a cotton fabric in a beautiful white, blue and red floral print and I think it will be perfect in Florida during the cooler months. Florida rarely get’s cold enough to wear very heavy scarves, so this one will be perfect.
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.
