>> I had meant to post up these scarf creations by Clements Ribeiro that comes from their A/W 10-11 pre-collection to follow up on the foulard boots I had discovered.  Ok, so using up vintage silk scarfs isn't exactly novel or ground breaking but so bloody easy considering how much in abundance they are.  If you have one that is large enough in scarf, even dancing around with scarves draping them over the head, around the body or flinging them around in the air could accidentally turn onto some clever way of styling with one.

Sadly my own collection, despite several off-loadings from the mother and both grandmothers, isn't quite as extensive as this the one that Suzanne Clements and Inacio Ribeiro have pilfered from.  I'm mentally picking them apart and doing my imaginary scarf dance with them to see what temporary knotted outfits I could come up with (I kid you not, I fashioned a 'going out' outfit with some scarves and a vintage slip dress).

There are likewise countless scarf DIYs which stands to reason seeing as they're so bloody easy but this is the latest one I've seen on I Want This Dress and Braids and Bows, a joint blog based in Tel Aviv that happened to be featured in their Time Out…

Way to go for pointing out the obvious but perhaps there'll be a few of you who will be looking sheepishly at your box of scarves if you haven't attempted wizarding at least one accidental outfit out of them…

    To be honest, I’ve never even considered doing anything with them! I may have to have a go at this actually. It looks really simple, but very pretty!

    Those Clements Ribeiro frocks are adorable!
    I’m forever buying vintage scarves from charity shops & car boot sales with this sort of DIY project in mind but I haven’t quite got round to actually doing anything with them yet :(

    Cute idea. At Liberty London they also teach how to use a scarf in many different ways now.

  6. Love it!! Amazing idea!

  7. Catherine says:

    Looking pretty awesome!
    You can buy scarves in bulk (as in pick single ones out pick ten get discount) in Shanghai……at most is like 10 dollars for quality silk.

  8. Shini says:

    Oh what a greattt idea, although I think 80% of the outcome is contributed by how pretty the actual scarves are…

  9. Brigadeiro says:

    How gorgeous! I loved wearing scarves as tops/garments, but haven’t altered any as yet…love the DIY!

  10. Like so many others, I hadn’t thought of fashioning clothing from scarves. How incredibly inspiring though!

    this reminds me of my childdood when I used to hide away in my grandparents bedroom, rifel through my grandmas scarf drawer, twist and tie the scarfs together and around my body, and exit the room proudly to impress the family with my creation…. at least they acted impressed…

    Nice, it actually looks ridiculously simple and do-able, even with minimal sewing skills. You can just go buy some fabric if you don’t have overflowing trunks of scarves.

    I want to try this but I love my scarves way too much. I know that even if I bought scarves now with the intention of doing this to them later, I wouldn’t be able to bring myself to do it.
