Super fast: The fancy wrap

Dear friends,

today I give you an on the fly fashion-tip.

I owned a big, broad stole made out of fine cotton, that I never used because I felt literally overwhelmed by all that fabric. But then I had the idea to turn it into a wrap.


It was done in less than one hour.

IMG_1762First some preparatives: Iron the stole and fold it in half. Fix the side seam vertically at an altitude of ca. 16 inches with three or four pins. Now there are 9 inch left of the stole’s fabric that drops down casually. Of course the seam isn’t turned over.

For the straight neckline fold the already folded stole once more in half. Then align the selvage with the

side-seam. On the upper part, define the middle of the shoulder section and fix the length of the neck opening by sticking a pin about every 11 inches.

Make the incisions along the fold. After that you tuck two small seams of fabric with the iron and quilt them narrowly. And voila there is a comfortable wrap – or tunica – to suit you at home, in the garden or at the beach.

I wish you al lot of fun doing it on your own!
