This scarf was made from a pair of grey wool trousers, destined for the charity bin. I decided to re-purpose the garment into as many new items as possible.
For this project, I used the better part of one trouser leg. I lined the back with some soft brushed cotton fabric featuring a lovely botanical print in an Autumn colour palette. Ruffles were added (of course!) to the ends of the scarf. I used three buttons from the original garments waistband to embellish the edge and to give it what I think is a more distinguished look.
It is on the shorter side for a scarf, but it is perfect for my fitted jackets, when I don’t want to have excessive bulk tucked in at my chest. Though, I would not want to ever tuck it in and hide the super-girlie ruffle action!
