    To make the sleeveless top look, you are going to step into the scarf + raise it to chest-level (as if you had a looped bath towel around yourself).

    Pull it to one side where you will have it fitted on one side of your body and your other arm extending the excess fabric.

    With your free arm, pinch the fabric under your extended arm + swing the excess fabric in front of you and tuck it in as if you were holding up a bath towel. (Depending on how long your scarf is + your size, you may have to fold loop excess once more before you tuck it.)

    Add a belt to finish the look. I also wore a bandeau top under my circle scarf top. If it doesn’t quite feel as secure as you’d like – that’s what safety pins are for :)

    Hope this helps + I’m glad that you all are enjoying the tutorial!

    xo, raven

    Yeah, the tutorial was pretty great. Will you tell me how you wrapped the scarf around you for the sleeveless top look?
