But I still love them, and I think they can be sexy, saucy, and stylish all at once if you go about it in the right way.
Today I'm going to show you how you can make your own super easy caftan top that will be perfect for any occasion.
2 large scarves (mine are 42"X 42"or 106.5 cm square)
sewing machine (or needle if you'd prefer to do this by hand...which you can, it's that easy!)
1) Cut off any tags from your scarves
3) Fold your scarf in half along one side to determine the centre and mark it with a pin.
4) Next, you need to decide how long you want your top to be. Because my scarves were extra big I was able to fold them almost in half. This way I got the length I wanted and they were then lined so I wouldn't have to wear a tank top underneath. I could've left them long and made a dress instead. You decide what works best for your body.
|You can see here that it's folded.|
This is just the front so far.
For this seam you can leave wrong sides together and stitch on the outside.
|My stitching is really much straighter than it looks here.|
The scarf is just not laying straight...really!
|Wear it off the shoulder for evening|
|Wear it centered for something a little more conservative|
