DIY No-Sew Shrug From Scarf

You’ll need :

1 scarf long enough to cover your shoulders and arms

Directions :

Hold the scarf lengthwise with one corner in each hand.

Now fold it in half, lengthwise, and again hold two corners of one side in each hand.

Use these two ends to tie a secure double knot. The round spaces made by the knot are going to be the armholes.

Slide your arms into the armholes and adjust the shrug to fit you properly.

Show-off your quick and easy new shrug at a pool party, beach or just out on the street!

DIY No-Sew Kimono From Scarf

You’ll need :

1 scarf long enough to cover your shoulders and arms

Directions :

Place the scarf lengthwise on your shoulders and cover your arms and shoulders properly with it.

Using the two ends of the breadth on one hand, tie a secure knot around your wrist.

Repeat step 2 for the other hand now.

Adjust the Kimono to fit you properly.

Your super fast and stylish kimono shrug is ready to go!

Tip –

For both the styles, use a light, flowy fabric like georgette or chiffon so that it gives the best breezy look.

Difference between a Shrug & Kimono

A casual shrug is a short, close-fitting garment worn only by women. It covers only the arms, shoulders and the upper part of the back of a person. They cover less of the body than a Kimono. Shrugs may have one button or a code to tie the two ends. Shrugs are shorter than Kimonos; they just fall below the mid of your back.

A Kimono styled shrug is more loosely fitted and covers your entire upper body and can be even longer. Kimonos do not have buttons and are longer in length than casual shrugs.

Eco-Friendly Dressing
