It’s Day 12 of my 31 Days of Thrift and I grabbed one of the scarves from my stash and went TOTALLY out of the box. DAY 12/31:
#3 – Green ombre scarf
This one takes the cake!
After playing around with it for a bit, the light bulb went off and I turned it into a dress!!
I took the light green side of the scarf and pinched the center edge at my right shoulder. I added a safety pin to use for the ruching effect at the shoulder and then pulled the scarf around my body on the left side, meeting right below my armpit. I pinned this area as well as the right edging of the scarf at the torso and lightly hand stitched both spots to keep the center of the dress together.
This style feels super caftan-ish, so it's something that could work just over a bathing suit!
Scarf: Untagged // Heels: Steve Madden // Clutch: Accessorize UK // Sunglasses: Melrose Trading Post Flea Market
I feel like a Grecian princess in this piece and who would have thought that it started off as a scarf??
More looks coming later today!!
