A couple days ago I posted about a Hermes scarf dress I saw at the boutique? I couldn't resist checking the price. I almost gagged when I saw $2075. I guess when a person who can spend $20,000 to $100,000 annually (to qualify as a Hermes VIP at Hermes), this price will be nothing. Anyhoo, I have a few Hermes scarves sitting around so I made my own version of the dress without sewing one stitch.
I placed to 2 safety pins on each side of my shoulders to attach at the top. You can make adjustment according to your own shoulder width. Instead of sewing the 2 sides together at the bottom (see here), I wrapped the back scarf to the front and secure with a safety pin. Then, I arranged the front scarf in attractive folds, making sure front and back are the same length.
I tried sitting down and lifting my arms, the dress was pretty secure. I wore a camisole inside anyway though. It is definitely more secure to sew the two scarves together on the sides but my way is easier, at least for me.This is a super easy DIY either way. If this look grows on me, I will definitely buy a couple Hermes scarves to sew them together.
