This shop really is a constant source of inspiration for many creative folks like you and I. This Anthropologie-inspired tuxedo ruffle scarf can be made as a ‘last-minute’ Christmas gift.
Here’s the free sewing tutorial / pattern for this amazingly good looking scarf that indeed looks like you would have just picked it up from Anthrolopologie.
A moderately experienced seamstress would put this scarf together in less then 1/2 an hour. The rest of us may need a full 60 minutes… but regardless, it’s a fast scarf to make.
Free Tuxedo Ruffle Scarf Sewing Pattern
From 66″ of fabric, you cut a long strip of 20 inches wide x 66 inches long (i.e. the length of fabric ). Your scarf will be half as wide as this as it will be folded in half. Also cut 3 smaller strips of fabric 6 inches wide x 66 inches long to make ruffles to fit scarf. Join the 3 (or 2.5) strips to cover your scarf’s length with the ruffles How much of the 3 jointed strip you will use depends on how tight you want your ruffles. Gather this strip by pulling the bobbin thread (stitching thread that is underneath the fabric) from both ends. Pin and sew the ruffle strip onto your scarf. Fold the scarf in half with the ruffles centred in the middle front of the scarf. Turn it inside out and sew edges to close, leaving a small gap for turning it back right-side out and hand-stitch closing section.
