Last month we went to NYC and Montauk on a family vacation and, since I wanted to leave plenty of room in my suitcase for NYC fabric finds, I needed some versatile clothing that could do double duty. So, I whipped up this easy wrap scarf in less than 15 minutes the day before we left. It was perfect to wear as a blanket on the cold plane, as a scarf around the city, as a wrap in restaurants and as a swimsuit coverup while hanging out by the pool. Plus, as I’ve mentioned many times before, clothing that is like a socially acceptable blanket is my favorite – and this is literally a blanket!

Let’s talk fabric! I’m feeling the hippy/boho vibe this summer and this shibori jersey knit from Fabric.com is perfect! It’s a 95% Rayon from Bamboo/5% Spandex blend which means it’s drapey and soft. Lately, I’ve been paying a lot more attention to the fabrics that my favorite store bought garments are made from and I’ve been looking to find similar fabrics to sew with. I like how Fabric.com lists out the blends on the site so I can understand what the fabric will feel like since I’m too impatient to order samples.

Want to make one too? It’s easy! Let’s get started.
