Linen and Lace Summer Scarf

Linen and Lace Summer Scarf

Scarves aren't just for fall and winter -- a lace-trimmed linen scarf is the perfect accessory for warmer weather. If you want to add a touch of color to your summer fashion, this easy-to-make scarf from Jenya of MyEvaForeva fits the bill.


 

Materials:

  • Good quality pure linen, 1-1/2 to 2 yds. x 50" to 60" wide
  • Flat lace, 2-7/8 to 3-3/8 yds.
  • Sewing machine
  • Serger (optional)
  • Thread
  • Scissors

Steps:

  1. Serge the shorter edges and use a fancy picot edging stitch on longer sides. If you don't have a serger you can use your sewing machine and do a running stitch on a narrow folded edge.

  2. Attach the lace to your shorter edges using a sewing machine. To secure exposed sides of the lace trim I just used a zig-zag stitch.

  3. Now submerge the whole scarf in cool water and them squeeze the water out. Let the scarf dry a bit. When it's still slightly wet twist it really well like shown below and let it dry completely. Once it's dry, open it up and give it a good shake.

I agree arodriguez. This scarf is so beautiful. So simple yet so elegant. And the choice of color is just so cool and classy. Thanks for the sewing instructions.

I absolutely love the color of this scarf as well as the tiny lace detail. It is a spring scarf that everyone should have in their closet.

This is a great idea for people (like me) who live in hot countries and need sun protection of the neck and decolletege while keeping cool. I like this scarf and will try to make it. It could be used as a wrap for cooler summer evenings as well.

Too....too bulky. 58-60" wide? 2 yds long? I'm a fan of skinny scarves. This looks more like a blanket of some sort.
