MATERIALS AND SUPPLIES
- Two medium-sized silk or satin scarves
- Cotton thread in a coordinating color
- Sewing needle
- Measuring tape
- Body form (optional)
Before you begin, steam or iron your scarves. This will prevent creasing or wrinkling while you’re working on them.
With the right-side up, fold the first (front) scarf in half to locate the center. Insert a pin on the edge of the fabric to serve as a reference point.
To add a notch on the shoulder, measure 11 inches from the outer edge, and pin it. Repeat both steps with the second (back) scarf.
Drape and pin the front scarf over the body form. (Tip: Use the pinned center and shoulder notches as reference points.)
Take the back piece of the scarf dress, join the back shoulder notch overlapping the front shoulder notch, pivot the back at an angle, and secure it with pins.
