Silk Scarf Safety Pin Tank Top DIY

Vena Cava silk safety pin tank top DIY

This fun and easy scarf DIY top would be adorable over a pair of shorts in the Summer! You can also wear it as a halter, if you instead turn the scarf from square in front of your body to diamond shape with corner at your neck and working out with safety pins from there.

* Notes *
* EASILY do this exact DIY with an old T-shirt …which I am going to do as well.
* If you’re a pro …you can easily create the exact pattern of the Vena Cava top in any silk fabric. OR remove the straps of a camisole you already have and replace them with safety pins.
* If using a silk scarf, know that pins will leave minor holes so use a scarf you’re probably not going to use again otherwise.
* The folds in the front give boobies an extra layer so they are not at all exposed if going bra-less …also they will not fall out of this top UNLESS a safety pin comes undone …but what are the odds of that? If you’re worried about that, use a needle and thread to stitch pins to fabric at bases.

    Brilliant!! I just did a scarf top on my blog the other day. The scarf I used was the same size & shape as a pashmina. I like the idea of doing this with an old t-shirt. Gonna add this to the long list of projects I have in the cue. ;)

    Looks great!! I often find that your DIY projects come out better than the inspiration designs. It is a perfect sexy summery top! Well done.

    I LOVE this idea but you OB-viously don’t have mesquito (sp?) bites I have, if you get my drift. What the heck would you use for a “bra” under this thing? Bandaids?! ha!

    Love and admire your creativity as usual. Oh, and someone I know IRL told me that my hair reminds me of yours…which I took as a great compliment! ;-)

    This is an awesome idea! I am wondering where you see the images that you use for inspiration. Are there certain blogs you check everyday? Where do you find these cool looks?

    男人有了外遇,但是他不想離婚
    外遇情人面前,他可以享受著年輕戀愛般的美好
    在回歸家庭時刻,他可以享受著老婆對他無微不至的照顧
    在同事朋友面前,他可以享受著眾人對他的忌妒與羨慕
    男人有了外遇,但是他不想離婚,他只想自私的擁有一切

    外遇—偷來的時間、偷來的伴侶、偷來的愛情
    或許新鮮刺激,或許瘋狂美好,但這一切,終究是偷來的…
    外遇傷害了一個幸福的家庭
    或許你會說:問題其實早已存在,外遇並不是傷害的唯一因素
    但是內心深處其實你知道,這只是外遇的藉口!
    建築在傷害別人之下所得到的愛情,終究難以幸福…

    This scarf top is fabulous – increases wardrobe possibilities infinitely! I enjoy many of the DIY’s you share because they are classy and not the usual virginal, sophmoric designs I find elsewhere. Wonderful, wonderful eye you have Mrs. Maegan. Thanks for sharing your fun.

    Maegan this is so cool. I never thought to make a scarf into a shirt.I found this site on StumbleUpon on how to wear a scarf 37 different ways but there is also some really cool things on ways to tie a square scarf. Thought you might find this helpful!
