Step 2: Wrap & Tie
Fold the scarf in half the long way and wrap it around your body with the folded side and the bottom. Tie it in a knot in the back.
Step 3: Mark & Cut Strap Holes
Use a pencil to mark spots on the front and back where the straps will be attached. Then cut very tiny slits at those spots.
Step 4: Attach Straps
Attach the elastic starting from the one of the back holes, looping diagonally through the front hole on the opposite side, across and through the other front hole, then diagonally down to the other back hole. Tie knots at each end to secure the elastic straps.
Note: You may need to measure the elastic beforehand to make sure the length is correct for your body.
Step 5: Cut Fringe & Add Binding Tape
Use fabric scissors to cut the fringe ends from the scarf. Then fabric glue the binding tape along the edges for a smooth finish.
Step 6: Add Fringe
Glue one of the fringe strips across the bottom of the halter top on the inside layer. Leave to dry for a few hours.
That’s all it takes to turn a scarf into this cross back halter top that rivals similar designs on some of today’s most popular clothing sites. You’ll be able to rock this DIY version and save money!
