I used a cotton lycra jersey from my local Mill End Textiles. The long straight edge is stabilized with clear elastic and the ruffle is gathered with clear elastic before being stitched to the curved edge. That amounts to about a mile and a half of clear elastic. I serged a rolled hem on the outside edge of the ruffle.
I found a clear and sunny (albeit boring) space of wall for winter pictures. The downside is that I'll have to move my electric piano whenever I want to use it.
The question is, should I:
a. wear this confidently in public as an accessory
b. wear this as a scarf only under a coat
c. wear this around home in my pajamas
d. add it to my ever-growing pile of fabric to be used for underwear
e. donate it to Goodwill to benefit next year's tax return
