PostSubject: Shawl or Wrap ideas?   Thu Mar 24, 2011 12:15 pm

Okay, this isn't really a work in progress because I haven't started yet!! :p

I wasn't sure where else to post this. I am looking for ideas to make a wrap or shawl for my daughter for prom.

She doesn't think she needs one, but this is her dress: http://www.modcloth.com/Womens/Dresses/-Tasteful-in-Turmeric-Dress

We live in Michigan and she's going to wish she had something to get from the car to the dance!

Do you have any ideas for a wrap that would go with that dress? She is wearing silver pumps (with clear heels!) and she has a silver clutch and jewelry.

I saw this wrap, but she didn't like it: http://wkdesigner.wordpress.com/2008/11/15/929/

I can sew and crochet, any ideas would be greatly appreciated!! Smile

I was thinking of making this for myself: http://www.burdastyle.com/projects/mobius-scarf

They stay on your shoulders easily. I don't like regular scarves much for that reason, they tend to come undone or need a hand to hold them in place.

crochet version: http://www.crochetmemories.com/patterns/crochet-mobius-scarf.php

Maybe in a pretty silver fabric or thread to match her accessories? A big flower brooch to hold it together would look fab too imo. Other options would be a thin shrug with sleeves or a jacket... I would go for a short black leather jacket, but that's just me. Embarassed

Thank you for those! I really like the burda style one. I am making her clutch, so I could make one out of the same fabric.

Now crossing my fingers that she will like it! Wink
