Hi everyone this is my first post, and with my following request for info you will see I am an extreme novice lol. I’ve just recently got my first sewing machine and I wanted to try my hand at adapting pieces in my wardrobe and then move onto working with patterns and creating new pieces. For example making adjustments to my own clothes for a better fit, upcycling pieces to get more use out of them, and just general dabbling! I have a lovely scarf from Primark which has a gorgeous pattern on it but I would like to turn it into a poncho, I was thinking of measuring across my neckline and cutting a hole in the middle and then doing a satin stitch. I wanted to know if this is the best way or if I am missing a trick ( remember, an extreme novice! ) Before I ruin a perfectly good scarf!
