From square scarf to elegant cover

Are you starting to think about the upcoming Party Holiday Season and wondering what new and fabulous wardrobe additions that you will need.

I am featuring a GREAT IDEA that is not necessarily new, but a "here I am, look at me" must have.
This is a 48 inch square scarf that has been cut exactly in half and then sewn back together with a french seam, leaving an opening large enough to go over your head.



It could also be made by just cutting a slit in the center and hemming the edges.
The edges may be hemmed with a hand rolled hem or a machine rolled hem or even a small serged edge.

I like to pair this with a turtleneck sweater and a dressy pant.



This is a light and breezy silk scarf, but the same thing could be achieved with a heavier fabric.  It totally depends upon the desired look and effect.
