From headband to halter top, there are many ways to repurpose a scarf… safely. So when blog browsing taught me a way to easily transform one into a miniskirt, I immediately thought wardrobe disaster – but then remembered my affinity for free clothes.
Start with a scarf. The one I used here is cashmere, 72 inches long, 32 inches wide, and fringed. Fold it in half (the long way) and begin. Tip: Unless you’re wearing it over a bathing suit, use a safety pin or fancy brooch for secure fastening.
