We show you how to transform a scarf into a tunic!
- 1 rectangular scarf (ideal size 60cm x 180-200cm)
- tailor’s chalk
- Fold the scarf in half lengthways. Mark the centre point along the fold line using tailor’s chalk. This is
where your neckline will go.
- Cut a slit perpendicular to the fold to run 10cm down the back and 25cm down the front (see diagram
online). Sew all around the slit, leaving a 1.2cm border. This will strengthen the tunic’s neckline.
- Fray the edges of the fabric around the neckline. (Alternatively, add a cute pompom fringe or
a rolled hem at the neckline.)
- Sew the side seams as shown on the diagram, leaving generous armholes and slits up the sides
for easy fitting.
- Hem as desired, with a line of stitching and frayed edge, or a rolled hem.
