Off the Shoulder Scarf Shirt / Dress. DIY

Make your own off the shoulder Shirt/ Dress with a scarf in 10 minutes.
Adam and I saw this top  while we were out getting ideas
 and we thought it would be super easy to make.


Tutorial 
Things you need.

  1. A scarf (Dimensions my scarf  is  6 feet by 3 feet)
  2. Sewing machine
  3. Safety pins 
  4. Pencil or chalk

 measure  from under your arm almost to your shoulder.

 Fold your scarf in half

 Use a piece of clothing that you like the way it fits 
and trace a line from under the arm to the bottom hem.


 with your safety pins, pin where your measurements are.
Try it on. 
Make adjustments if necessary.



If it fits....
sew where the red lines are. A small half inch at the top.
*I sewed over it twice to make sure it was secure.*

Front

 Back


Now you have a new off the shoulder shirt or dress for  a summer party.
I made this in about ten minutes.
You can too.
Have a Wonderful Wednesday!
Lots of <3,
Anne

  11. I am sorry. I don't understand the sewing part. Can you clarify it for me?? Am I suppose to sew whole top to bottom? You didn't draw dash lines on top. Thank you! You can email me at caligirlmimi@yahoo.com or I will check back.

  12. I have a scarf large enough for a dress and I had literally searched the web for a design that would fit perfectly...others would either be too corny, too complicated,etc..etc... This is the only site that I find very "Idiot Friendly" (for I am an idiot when it comes to DIY)hahaha ...THANK YOU!!!!

  13. This is amazing, very SATC! Hope I can work out how to do it! Do you think you can hand sew it as I do not have use to a sewing machine? Thanks

  15. How pretty is this??! I brought back WAY too many pretty scarves from my semester abroad in Thailand; I can just see some of them reworked into gorgeous tops/dresses like these! I love one-shoulder tops but they're always way too boobilicious... LOVE this.
