When I saw this photo of Katie at a wedding, I thought, WOW! What a cute dress!
|The fact that this girl lives on a farm still kills me.|
When I inquired about it, Katie told me that it was actually a scarf she'd made into a dress. No, not a scarf she cut up and sewed into a dress, a scarf that she tucked and folded in such a way that it required nothing more than a couple of pins, and is now happily back to its former scarf self. WHAT?! you're probably thinking. How is this possible? Well, Ima show you.
|First, grab a large scarf* (and a small model).|
|Second, drape it around the model's neck and tie a knot.|
|Third, be silly.|
|Fourth, strike a pose.|
|Fifth, fold the scarf up to desired length.|
|Sixth, pull the fabric around your waist like an apron.|
|Seventh, tuck excess fabric into the waistband.|
|Eighth, make any adjustments.|
|Ninth, strike another pose, because you're fabulous.|
Let's all give Sarah, my sis, a round of applause for being such an enthusiastic model. And to Katie, of course, for being so creative and just darn awesome. The belt she's wearing is actually a necktie with a vintage pin. Ridic.
* Katie assured me this scarf wasn't sheer. I beg to differ. But somehow she attended a wedding (an English one at that) and didn't manage to offend anyone.
Then again, look at her.
