This design was inspired by a dress worn by Kate Hudson. I love Bohemian fashion. How it flows, with contrasting patterns, uneven hems, the escential hippie look. It's also fun, fashionable and most importantly...comfortable.
First take one corner of eash scarf and hand sew them together (You can also use a button or clasp). This will be the top back part of the dress.
Next sew the two scarves together where you would like the bust line to fall.
I saved the excess fabric to fill the hem line.
Next take your other scarves to fill in the gaps.
The back is going to be a bit more trick cause you need to put in the zipper. It will probably end up at an angle with the random pieces seven together.
I folded and sewed a piece of scarf around the bust line to give it more structure (and hide mistakes). Then garnished it with some bling, crystals hand sewen on for the finishing touch.
I left the hem long, frayed and untouched. I wanted to keep that raw fresh sewen feeling.
I showed off my designer scarf dress at the Minneapolis Ivey Awards. An award show appreciating the local talented artists in the theater world.
