Make a Boho Swing Tank Top from a Skirt and Scarf

I fell in love with the ikat scarf I found at the thrift store for $1.  I don't really wear scarves, so I combined it with a denim skirt to make a boho swing tank top.


I cut the yoke from the scarf.


Then I attached it to the skirt.


After sewing the shoulder and side seams, I finished the neckline and armholes with bias tape.


Don’t you love the way the bodice drapes? 


This flowing top is perfect for hot summer days.  For a step by step tutorial on how to refashion a skirt and scarf into a boho swing tank top, check out my blog www.trevorlovesmommy.com
