Vintage Scarf Refashion #1 - Bias Cut Scarf Top


I was thrilled to be contacted by Dressmaker magazine as they wanted to include my scarf top in their January edition in an article about Second Hand Sews.  I was influenced by 1930s scarf clothing when I designed this top and worked out how to cut a scarf (see below) and then stitch it up into a bias top.

I have now uploaded a pdf worksheet with instructions and photos showing how to make the top if you would like to download it.  The link to my own blog is here

Happy stitching everyone!  Karen x
