One Shoulder Dress – BurdaStyle 07/2011 #106

This was stitched up in about half an hour, sewn out of a large rectangular ready made pashmina shawl/scarf made of sari-style polyester fabric with mini mirrors on its borders, which my Auntie gave me brand new. It was easy because the scarf was exactly the same size as the specified amount of fabric required lol, no wastage except for a small triangle cut out. All I had to do was basically fold the scarf in half and stitch up a few sides, and all the edges are finished nicely already. I didn’t line it so that made it even quicker, and its very sheer and flowy but can be worn over any tops and pants, or as a glam beach or poolside caftan lol as I’ve done here. Location: Milford Beach

Material Notes

purchased pashmina shawl/scarf: large woven polyester rectangle in hot pink with mini mirrors.
