Hello fellow craftsters!  I'm very excited to present my version of the scarf dress/pencil skirt combination.
It took me about two hours to complete.  
I used these two links as general guides/inspirations...Thank you so much for these tutorials!!!!!

The skirt is made from black work pants I've had for a while but never wore; they're a stretchy material and almost shiny.  The scarf is one my mother gave to me and have always wanted to use it for something!  I have yet to hem it but ran out of black thread.  I used navy blue to sew the scarf down.  I hope it isn't too noticeable.  Smiley
(sorry for the sideway shots!  I forgot to rotate them)




The best part is I don't have to wear a bra!  I have a size D cup but since the scarf wraps all the way around I'm all covered up...I may be a bit saggy but boy do I feel free!

Love the colorful top with the black skirt..

shhhh--if you don't tell people the mistakes, they wouldn't even notice! I have used blue thread on black before and just stayed in the shadows! ha ha Cheesy
