Infinity Scarf from Skirt

Finally, it is Spring Break and I have a few days off work. So I thought I'd whip up a refashion.  I have an old-old broom skirt which is not only dated but the elastic is all stretched out and starting to make that cracking noise.

Here is the top where the elastic is, you can't really tell, but it is all stretchy:

But, the bottom of the skirt had a nice goldy-yellowy print which I thought might be nice in a scarf:

The skirt is quite sheer and is lined (you can see a bit of the lining in the pic above), so I flipped the lining up and bunched it together to cut:

Now comes the hard part.  I'm going to hand-sew the edge so it doesn't fray or leave bits of fabric everywhere.  This will take hours, so I leave you with this.

Although it's not quite done, I tried it on to see how the finished result would look:

  3. Oh, it will make an excellent scarf. Happy stitching. I have a skirt that I need to shorten and I have a couple hours of stitching to look forward to myself.
