Make You Own Scarf Tunic!



I have always had a fondness for sarongs and scarves. Since I have so many, it's fun to play with them, especially when I come up with a new way to wear one. This scarf was on sale at Dot's for $7 bucks. It is very sheer and about 4 feet wide when pulled loose. I can even wear it as a skirt! 

HOW:
Start from behind - Wrap it around your chest, gather top of scarf at front of neck, twist, tie and wrap around your neck - Tie. Then tie a small knot at the bottom front to pull it in a bit.(I hope that made sense). Wa-La! A new, fresh and frugal summer top. A short sarong would work, too. It's super easy and under 8 bucks! It's also a great look with a tee or without. I prefer the tee for bra strap coverage ;)

Here's to a creative week!

Hm, I have just one scarf this size...and it is sheer, but I may have to try this!

This is brilliant! though I don't think I have any big scarves left, I got rid of them all in a fit of 'it's never summer here anyway'.

I like scarves, thanks for the tutorial. I think this would be great as a beach coverup, too.

Very cool, in two ways! Love this idea. I think I have just the scarf but I need to take it off the vanity first. ;)

Fab idea, I've got far too many sarongs I can try this out with. x

I think I have the same scarf and I love it! Will have to try this "tie".

Hi Reva,
Thanks for commenting on Project Minima! I had just visited you from Patti's site too cuz of the gorgeous print top. I have to go closet hunting now to see if there's any large scarves in there...great idea.
