I was pondering whether to make it 'practical' or 'whimsical'. In the end I decided to make it practical so that I can wear it for a variety of occasions and weather.
I used my tried and true thrifted pattern McCall's 8048 from the 1970's. It's a pullover, slightly a-line dress. I made a white table cloth lace dress with this pattern previously.
I serged the sleeves and neckline edges with roll-hem and used the original edge of the scarf as the hem. It came together really quickly (I like that!). It's a bit loose and breezy on me. I thought it would be perfect for a hot summer night. Perhaps even a date night?

I can't wait to wear this out this summer! Plus I have made 2 identical scarves with the remnants of this project:
I plan to wear one and give the other to someone as a gift. I'm pretty happy with what I have done with this 1 big thrifted scarf!
