The buttons/beads sound like a great idea! I was thinking of stitching the outermost corner on the sleeves too, to leave a little gap in that sort of greek style. But the fabric is just a tiny bit stiff, and I was afraid they'd pop up and look weird. Also noticed when wearing it today, that my bra is fairly visible under the arms. Maybe stitching just a bit under the arm and down to the t-shirt bit would solve that, if you need a work-safe look (in my case I'd just wear a black/matching bra or something).

It'd be a shame to cut up those scarves! Really all you need is a square of fabric. Using a scarf is just simple as their already hemmed and it's easy to find fun designs for cheap.

Great idea! I feel the need to go to a thrift shop or two and get some scarves! Thanks for posting the tut too!

Got lots of scarfs I got a goodwill for .49 each.  I made a purse out of one. (really cute and spring looking)  Now I've got another idea to use them.  Thanks

I love this!
I have a crapton of scarves that I've recently bought for projects, and I'm definitely going to include this one!
However, I think I will look for either a longer shirt, or just one that is really large and then take it in to make it fitted, so that it will be long enough to be a dress! Don't want to deal with zippers though, so the t-shirt material will be perfect for slipping it on easily!

So summery!  Thanks for the tute.  Things like this are a lifesaver for my low-budget high-heat summer wardrobe.
