Speaking of weddings, for the one last month I waited until the last minute to get a wrap and spent the day before the flight running from store to store looking for a plain black stole. Of course, all I could find were beaded or embroidered and way more than I could reasonably pay for something I was likely going to use twice this year. So, I hauled out my serger, bought a few yards of inexpensive but drapey rayon something or other, and used a very narrow lingerie edge on a rectangle which was 36″ x 76″. Folded in half horizontally it’s wide enough to cover the upper arms, unfolded it could potentially save me from unexpected cold.
Of course, I cut the fabric along the wrong line the first time I tried and so have a matching scarf which is only half as wide.
