I had an idea when I saw the scarves on display in my local op shop last week selling for $1 each. I found two silk scarves I liked and thought I'd have a go at making an repurposed silk scarf summer top.
:: $1 Silk Scarves ::
I first made sure the smaller of the two scarves would be an adequate fit around the side of my body, and be an acceptable length.
- I've trimmed down the larger of the two with pinking sheers so that each scarf matches in size.
- Re-hemmed approximately 1cm in from raw edge.
- Pinned the two scarves together, best sides facing each other, and stitched together in four straight lines as shown, leaving a gap at the top for my head, and two gaps either side for my arms:
- Turn the right way, and wear

I can wear my repurposed silk scarf summer top either way, which side do you prefer?
