Vintage Scarf

Take one vintage scarf with a hole in it and repair, as invisibly as possible.

That was the challenge that I faced when I bought this pretty scarf on Etsy.  

I believe that it dates from the 1950s and after that minor repair and a good press, it looks as good as new.  I love the bright colours of the seaside design.  Just the thing to go with a vintage sweater that I have on my project list, if ever I can find time to make it.

  1. Ooooo... Such a fun pattern and colors--that's a very cheerful scarf! Nice "save" too, Marie! Another idea could be to add a decorative trim--like a pom-pom fringe--set it a little higher than the hem, and it might cover the "save" too... Or maybe fringe is too OTT??!! VERY fun piece for your wardrobe! :o) ((HUGS))
