Two For The Price Of One

1 thrifted tribal print dress = 1 summer dress + 1 eclectic infinity scarf

For the dress, I added a shirred elastic waist (read more about elastic thread here), and chopped off a bunch of length from the bottom, then re-hemmed.

Then I used the extra length to create the infinity scarf - I just sewed some crocheted trim onto the raw edge as it was already a tube, and done!


  1. Great idea! I really like how the dress looks like!

  2. Great job on the dress and scarf! The pattern is great and I love how the trim softens up the scarf! I've also wanted to try my hand at sewing with elastic thread but was too wimpy to try! Your links are so helpful though that I'll definitely give it a go!
