Which was great because it meant lots of material to work with. This is what I got when I chopped it up (removed trim and button plackets and cut along the seams):
I left the sleeves intact because I thought I might be able to use them for something else, but I ended up needing part of them for length after all.
|I still have two little pieces of the sleeves left (see in the upper left?); not sure what I'll|
use them for! Arm warmers? Coffee cup sleeves? We'll see!
Anyway, once these pieces were cut, I followed these directions, except that as I mentioned before I had huge seam allowances--close to an inch!
You can see above how it came out when you snug it right up to your neck; below is pictured how you can loosen it up into more of a cowl. I think it would be great under a coat, but it's maybe not my favorite for just wearing around. Fortunately, my mom would never just wear a scarf with an outfit anyway, because it would cover up her jewelry! So a scarf that is meant to be outerwear is perfect for her.
There are links to all of the other infinity scarves I have upcycled on the accessories page, if you feel like taking a look!
