I did this last season with one of our scarves from the Fall Collection but it was a wide rectangle scarf. I thought I would show you how to tie a scarf into a vest using a narrower rectangle scarf as I like that look better on me especially since I am petite. People are always amazed that what I am wearing is actually a scarf! I don't usually like to wear vests but I find that it is so different that I just have to do it sometimes. I did two scarf "tricks" during a presentation at a networking business and even the guys loved it. One of them inspired me to blog and make a video demo too. Here goes!
I used kikaPaprika's Bird Scarf which sells for $26. I am also wearing Pippa in Ink ($50) and Simone in White (previous season item).
|Step #1: Take your scarf lengthwise ...|
|Step #2: Fold it in half. One side has your "fold" and the other side is "open".|
|Step #3: Take the corners that you were holding and tie a very small but secure knot.|
|Step #4: Find the side that was "open" (it helps if the scarf has fringe) and pull it open. |
You should find two holes like this to put your arms through.
|TADA! Here is the look all finished.|
