Anthropologie Inspired Tuxedo Scarf

One day I was blog surfing (gasp I know) and came across this fantastic tutorial for a tuxedo scarf at crafty habit. I ended up making two of these form the fabric suggested and I might even have enough for a third.

The first one I made seemed a little wide for my taste….


So I modified the width of the scarf and the ruffle by almost half and came up with this one that fits me perfectly. I love the purple and I love that it’s a little bit more dressy than the other styles I have!


What do you think? And what have you been sewing lately??


  1. I love this! I may have to "try" and make one myself!!!

  2. I wish! I haven't sewn clothes in 9 years and wish I would get back into it. I made my wedding gown and bridesmaids gowns and I think that wore me out for a while :o)

    Love the scarf. I'm into them lately. Just got me a Pashmina!

  3. Lacie what a wonderful job you did!!! I love it.

    I was considering making my second one skinner as well ;) and now I see that it looks great!

    I will post your version in my sidebar under a special section of projects by others that used my tutorials [ I have to actually create that section =)]

    Thanks for the link love :)

    It's posts like yours that make me wish the sewing machine my grandmother gave me when I was 12 years old wasn't in my parents' attic collecting dust. I LOVE that scarf-- want to send one my way?


  13. That scarf is awesome! We have bought our youngest daughter a sewing machine for Christmas and she is itching to get it! Did you teach yourself how to sew?

  14. Stopping by from SITS. Super cute scarf. I think you did a great job. I can sew but cannot seem to step away from the computer these days..I must do something about that!
