Giant Square Scarf
Infinity Scarf Skirt
Make sure you get one that has two hemmed edges instead of the two edges sewn together. This works for younger girls if folded over in half; if a casing is created along one edge, the skirt would be longer and might work for girls up to age 8. I love skipping a hem!
1. Fold the scarf in half lengthwise. I folded mine so one hem came down and inch farther than th eother.
2. Sew a casing around the top and leave a hole.
3. Insert elastic, and close hole.
*A loosely woven fabric is harder to sew with and holes are too easily torn. Get a tightly woven scarf if possible, or line it with some quilting cotton to stabilize it.
Rectangle Scarf Tutorial
This works for younger girls if folded over in half; if a casing is created along one edge, the skirt would be longer and might work for girls up to age 12 depending on the size of the scarf.
1. Sew the two short edges of the scarf together wrong sides together. You want the details to be on the outside of the seam.
2. Fold scarf in half lengthwise lining up the edges.
3. Sew a casing along the folded edge and leave a hole.
4. Insert elastic and close the hole.
*These scarves often have tassels or pompoms along the edge that give a great detail to the skirt.
These skirts have TONS of gathering which is perfect for happy, twirling girls. It also means it there’s a lot of room for different sizes because the gathering will work for lots of different sizes. It all depends on the length you can get from a scarf.
