On the other hand last summer I bought this tee
on a clearance purposefully with an idea to refashion it - because I am not a person that wears this kind of tops. I am pretty much broad -shouldered and I hate emphasizing the fact even more- I am sure people get the picture as it is.
However until yesterday I didn't have the slightest notion that these two were up for a match.
The children, due to the fresh air and long hiking (refer to my last post) went to bed early, the father of my children was deeply involved with an action movie on TV and that left me free to enjoy a little sewing after long abstinence.
So I made zillion things in front of the mirror and this is what I came up with.
I cut off the upper part of the top and left this piece aside for later.
Then I folded the scarf twice and marked it for cutting for the opening of the head.
I did this twice because I didn't want a big neckline just gaping, so it is a good idea to try it a couple of times until you are satisfied with the opening.
This is what I got.
Next I shirred the edge of the scarf. Since the scarf was almost twice wider than the left over piece of the top, I thought this would be a good way to narrow it a bit.
