Step 1.First you'll want to choose a fabric that's lightweight and has good drape. Some awesome choices would be chiffon, silk, or a jersey knit. Also, be sure to check out the scarf section at thrift stores! Sometimes you can find some beautiful vintage silk scarves that are wide enough for this project.
Once you've chosen your fabric, cut it into a rectangle. My fabric measured 38x45inches.
Step 2.Find the center of the top edge of your fabric. This will be your neckline. With a piece of chalk or something you can see, mark the center. Measure 5 inches down from the center and mark again.
Step 3.With chalk, mark 4.5inches into the side of the top edge of the fabric.
Step 4.Now connect the two marks so that it makes a neckline that looks like a boat.
Step 5.If you're using a fabric that frays easily finish the raw edges by either sewing a 1/4 inch hem, or take a cigarette lighter and burn the edges.
Step 6.Now make a new mark that is 22inches down from the top side. Next line up the top mark (4.5in at the top) with the side mark (22inches down).
Pin and sew a line that is 1 inch in length to connect the two pieces together.
