1/ 2 yd Lace
1/2 yd Backing Fabric
(ignore the elastic thread shown in the pic)
My original intention for this project was a shirred waist skirt. Some silky grey fabric with a lace overlay and a simple shirred waist sounded easy enough. However silk is far from the easiest material to work with and I couldn't get it to lay right in order to sew the lines of shirring. So I scratched that idea and went for a scarf instead. And hey, it turned out pretty cute!
Begin by cutting your lace and backing fabric into 18" x 45" rectangles. Pin the 45" sides of the fabric right sides together.
Sew along each 45" side
Turn inside out and you'll have something like this:
Bring the two ends together and pin the lace fabric right sides together.
Sew with a 1/2 inseam.
Turn the scarf inside out so that the seams are exposed and pin your backing fabric right sides together.
Sew as shown below (with a 1/2" inseam), leaving about a 4 inch gap opening.
Turn scarf right side out through your gap and secret stitch the opening.
Maybe not as cute as the skirt I had envisioned, but pretty darn close!
