Silk Ruffles & Rosettes

... just sharing my latest fabric creation.
A sweet silk scarf with a wide gathered ruffle on one end
and multiple layered rosettes embellishing the other,

and too many tiny ruffles to count in between!

I found the weightless silk top fluttering in the breeze,

another alley find on my walk home from the beach.
The neighbor had been editing her closet
and there were numerous items left out for others to
discover, take home and treasure or share.
I loved the beautiful fabric this top had been made with,
and having nothing to risk I tossed it in the laundry.
Grateful it laundered beautifully,
but since it wasn't my size or style,
I chose to re purpose the top into this ultra feminine ruffled scarf.

Unfortunately I did not take a before photo,
but this snapshot will show you what was left
after this sewing project was completed.

Thrilled to have it shared in Stampington's publication!
