This is the scarf vest that I mentioned in the article Remodeling Sarah – Wardrobe Revamp mini-series.
If you have a lot of scarves and are tired of wearing them the same old way, this is something different. As long as the scarf is rectangular it will work. The width doesn’t matter.
Start by holding the corners of the scarf with the longest sides running parallel to the floor. See picture to the right.
Again, any size scarf will work as long as it is rectangular.
Bring corners together and tie in a knot.
I try to keep the knot as small as possible as this will end up at the back of your neck and you don’t want to look like you should be hanging out at the Notre Dame Cathedral!
Find the ends of the scarf and open up so that you have two loops. This is where you will slip your arms, just like any vest!
you may need to flip the ends of the vest out or under to get the drape that you want. But you can see that it will take you about 30 seconds to create a really cool, lovely draping vest out of any scarf in your wardrobe!
I have included a couple of pics where I have used my leopard print scarf. You would have seen it in a number of other posts and can clearly see that it is much smaller than the first scarf…but it still works!
So what do you think? Do you love this idea as much as Sarah and I do? Will you give it a go?
