Hi everyone! How are things going? Good I hope  Smiley

I really wanted a new patchwork skirt for the summer, but didn't want to devote the time to make one... so I found a really beautiful one on ebay for only $16 instead.  It was a maxi skirt, and being 5'3'' I have no business in a maxi skirt. So I took 3 row off to shorten it to just below my knee. 

With some of what I took off, I trimmed it to size and made a spring weight scarf.








I used vintage variegated tatting thread (a few strands together) to crochet the trim and make the tassels.

Thanks for peeking  Smiley

Looks lovely and such a good idea! When you find something made from a great fabric there's nothing better than being able to 'extend' it into something else as well so you can wear it more often and in more ways and you've done that perfectly  Smiley

Thank you so much  Smiley It was very rewarding to be able to extend the fabric a bit! (Although I only got to wear it once before the weather got too hot for scarfs Smiley )
