In the past I happily used scarves to make my daughter tops and dresses and I have a tutorial made for the Burdastyle platform what seems eons ago. When I decided to make my niece a beach dress out of scarves, that was the perfect moment to make another fresh tutorial.
This is 'a perfect project' for moms because you can have a dress made in less than 10 minutes. What makes this project even easier is that the scarves are hemmed so you don't have to bother with that.
Gather your supplies
You need two scarves and a ribbon. The scarves I used measure: 20 x 20 inches or 50 x 50 cm.
Place the scarves one on top of the other with the face down (i.e. the wrong sides facing up).
Leave space for the casing. I left about 1.4" / 3.5 cm.
Start pinning the sides.
Next, fold and pin the casing.
Measure from shoulder to just below the arm pit (or a bit more for a more comfortable wear). That is the space for the armhole. I left 6" / 15.2 cm.
Sew from the marked pin down. Sew the other side.
And sew the casings.
When everything is sewn in place, iron the sides and the casings.
Insert ribbon through both cases (I left a generous amount of ribbon for effect when tied into a bow).
And Voila! Your dress is done!
As you can see Ena is quite happy with her new dress.
Enjoy the tutorial!
