scarf/sash

Post by sewmaid »

Hi
I want to make a scarf like the yellow one shown in this picture, can someone tell me what fabric to use, how much is needed for a medium size person and are the ends finished off with lace?

thanks

not being funny but this is very basic indeed and instead of asking here why dont you do something radical like open a book

But

it should be a minimum of 6 metres long made from silk and fringed in bullion
There’s a country in Europe where they treat their ex soldiers with pride no waits for medical treatment after injuries received during service, no amensia from the government. Cant for the life of me recall where it is but I know exactly where it is not.

Thanks, thats all i needed to know. I know this is pretty basic but my books dont tell me how much fabric is needed and what its fringed with so I thought i would ask on here as i need to make one up within the next couple of days.

No 6 metres is about right. It's not the size of the waist thats important but what uses the scarf is supposed to be used for, among others it is used to make stretcher when the officer concerned is injured on the battlefield and also their winding sheet when they die.
