DIY: Vintage Style Bowtie Headband

I’ve been so into scarves and headbands lately. This one is a classic Betty Draper in a pretty blue  (made from an old Ikea curtain I had in my fabric stash). It’s weird, when I wear it I have the sudden urge to bake a layered cake and gossip with society gals during horseback riding lessons.

In case you missed it, I have a tutorial here on making a turban headband scarf (I wear this one a few times a week!) and two ways to tie a scarf into a summer turban here


Thank you so much for this tutorial…I have made heaps of these this week from all sorts of fabrics. You can see I have talked about them a LOT on my blog. Such a quick and super-cute idea!

it's super easy and good looking. I definately will give it a try. Thanks for sharing.

Marloes, YES! I have that same problem. I purposely made the elastic loose so that it wouldn't be tight and slide off. Let me know if that works for you!

Heey, love this! But I was just wondering.. When I wear headbands they always tend of slide off.. do you have this problem and if so what to do to prevent this? Thank you!

Liz, I love all your beautiful head adornments. I just imagine that no one could look prettier in them than you and your pretty red lips. So lovely.

I will try this too for my daughter swan party! Looks great! thanks for Idea!! 🙂

Anon, I'm sorry you think so. I'm not sure what you're referring to. If there's another tutorial similar, it's purely a coincidence. If you want to discuss this further, please email me! I don't respond (typically) to anonymous comments that are mean and disrespectful.

what a cute idea! xoxo jillian:: don't miss my fishs eddy dish giveaway!
