I made an outfit to go with my infinity scarf.

This story starts with an infinity scarf.

I made a purple infinity scarf. About two weeks ago, I was cleaning up my sewing room and fabric stash. I found a whole heap of felted wool scraps that I needed to throw out, but I decided that instead of just throwing these scraps out, I would use my Accuquilt hexagon die and cut the scraps into hexagons. I’m not sure why this seemed like a rational idea, but it did, and so I cut a bazillion hexagons. Then I decided to use the purple hexagons and make a scarf.  I zig-zagged the hexagons together and sewed on a plum knit backing and voila, a purple-hexagon, infinity scarf. The thing about this infinity scarf is that I am kinda in love with it. I’m not sure if it’s the colors or the hexagons or if I’ve gone completely over the edge, but I LOVE this purple-hexagon, infinity scarf.

The problem was that I didn’t have anything to wear that would properly showcase this beauty of an infinity scarf. So I made myself a tunic using Jalie 3245 and some purple/lavender sweater knit that I bought at Golden D’Or Fabrics in Dallas, TX. I cut the tunic in this pattern and added cuffs on the sleeves.

The problem then became that I didn’t have anything to wear under this tunic. So I made a long sleeve t-shirt using Jalie 2805 and some plum ribbed-knit that I had in my stash.

I really like the way that this t-shirt layers with the tunic.

And the tunic and the t-shirt are the perfect base for my beloved infinity scarf. I’m going to find a way to wear this beauty to work this week!!!
