After | The upcycled scarf

Like a kindergartner, I’ve got a “Hey ma! Look what I made!” feeling about this project. Unlike The Anthology’s signature before and afters where I take a vintage piece and have it reinvented by my tailor, I did this one on my own.

And it wasn’t hard at all. I wove this striped silk scarf into a plastic chain, skipping a few links at a time, and turned it into one big necklace/scarf combo. (Neckarf? Scarflace? Hmm… I’m going to have to keep thinking about this.)

And because the chain had broken (how? I have no idea), I used a big floppy bow as the clasp. Fancy, huh?

P.S. You could do a lot of vintage shopping on us! We’ve got a Shoppalu x The Anthology giveaway going on right now.
