About a month ago I found myself wandering around a local goodwilll looking for yarn and I stumbled upon this amazing scarf that was about 2yds long. This was the most interesting and beatiful scarf I had ever found, and knew that I must make something great out of it. Soon I had imagined a plain cotton sundress to sew it to, in a draping fashion, and found one in a stash of old unused clothing to recycle. I didn’t have to do much to the dress itself, just hem it a bit and take it out a bit, yet soon these two pieces were put together and now I have the most fantastic sundress to show for it! There wasn’t much expertise needed to attach the scarf to the dress, yet it took a few hours to get the lay just right.
This dress goes to show that the goodwill really could supply all of my fabric needs…well maybe not all, but many im sure!
