Fabric waist tie

Here is another way to wear these skinny scarves. In the picture is a shift dress I made for hot summer evenings.
I made the pattern too but I wouldn’t recommend making your own patterns if you have limited sewing skills. I did it because I couldn’t find a pattern that had what I was wanting in a shift dress and I was determined to make this dress.

The scarf wraps around the waist to make a belt. The length of the scarf will be important if you would like to wear them like this.
The beads I bought from the Congolese traders at Green Market Square. They are malachite. I just love malachite.

The Greenie Galleries at the top of this page have 100s of photos of older and newer projects showing multiple ways to make your own clothing and accessories. There are also ideas to recycle or upcycle.

See you soon.
