My newest creation...I'm proud of my efforts to get everything "just right". The front is made from a $5 vintage scarf that I personally think is adorable.
w000, hope you enjoy!
Let me know dearies.

More information from page 2:
Those of you that would like to know what bbw patern I used, it was the basic shirt pattern that came with "Sew U". From there on I modified it and added my own tidbits (and it obviously didn't complete as a button-down) Cheesy I just needed guidance for the dart placement and such.

That is gorgeous! I have a bunch of silky scarves and I've been wanting to make a shirt out of them, but all of the others I've seen have been a bit revealing. Did you use a pattern? I would love to make a shirt like that!

Yes I did use a pattern. It only works really if you have one of the BIG square scarves...I was thinking about maybe doing one with scarf patchwork too. I actually used one of the Bullt By Wendy shirt patterns.

That's LOVELY! I really like the idea of incorporating a scarf into it... I see all sorts of great scarves when I'm vintage shopping but I never pick any up. This'll make me think twice. Wink

That's a great use of the scarf there, and the style of the shirt works gret with the vintage feel of it. Nice work!
