Into the Wild, Scarf Dress.

I have had these two scarves for about 4 weeks and they have been dying for me to do something with them. I had a dress idea in my head, and I finally finished it this morning.
 This is a  little like the other scarf, shirt, dress, I made , HERE, but the scarves are not on an angle.
Really simple tutorial.

Tutorial 
Things you need
1. Two scarves 4 feet by 4 feet
2. Sewing Machine and thread to match.
3. Safety pins
4. Dress chalk





1.  Lie your scarves down and find the middle, then measure out how wide you want the neck. Pin it ~I use safety pins, so that I could try it on easier.  I wanted mine to go off the shoulder so my neck opening is a little wider.
 2. Slip the dress over your head and mark right under your arms, take it off and lie it flat~ make sure you are even on both sides, under your arm area .pin it.
3.Then measure your hips and add two inches or more if you want. Pin it there, and then ~ Try it on.


4 If everything looks they way you want, sew it, start sewing under arm mark and make a gradual line out to  the hip marking. Repeat on the other side.
5. Try on.

You can belt it, or wear it without a belt.
Heels or flats.





I hope all of you had a marvelous Tuesday!
Mine was wonderful!

  5. So fun! Once Desi had his face painted like a tiger and I had him crouch down in some tall grass to take pics. This made me think of that. Haha! This could be a good swim cover up!
