Intro: How to Make an Easy Shirt From Two Silk Scarves
This is SO easy guys!
2 silk scarves matching in size and color. (or at least size)
Sewing machine, or needle and thread.
Step 1: Wash Your Scarves
Here is a representation of my two scarves.
I got the plain one for about 1.50, and the flower one for about 2.00
I got home and washed them on delicate, then hung them to dry.
You then layer the scarves on top of each other, right sides facing in.
Step 2: Sew It Up!
Basically, sew where you see the dotted lines.
(But probably a bit more even than my illustration)
Leave a big enough space for your head, the shirt is meant to be a bit "boat necked."
Also, make sure you leave enough room for your arms, so it's loose and breezy.
The shirt will naturally fall over your shoulders like sleeves.
Step 3: That's It!
The scarf should already be hemmed when you buy it, so...
that's all there is!
4 quick lines on the sewing machine, and you've got a new top!
Here is a bit of warning,
in most cases, these silk scarves are delicate and old...
It's not impossible to take stitches out, but it can leave holes, or even tear the fabric.
So, sew carefully!
