Copied from RTW headband

Copied from RTW headband
PR review of Headband
Cut fabric pieces as follows:-
one piece 16 inches by 7 inches.
two pieces each 4.5 inches by 12 inches.
neaten the long edges of the first piece and turn under and stitch.
Fold the narrow pieces in half and sew along the long edges and diagonally across the corner, turn and press.
Tuck the exposed edges under and press.
Now pleat the wide piece and tuck the ends into the narrow pieces - topstitch to secure and wear.
This can be worn many different ways
1. Use as a cumberbund with the pleated section at the front and tie at the back (for a wider waist you may need to lengthen the tie for this)
2. Wear with the pleated section under you hair and the ties showing on the top of the head.
3. Wear with the pleated section gathered up and a headband with the ties hidden under your hair.
4. Spread out the pleated section in the style of a headscarf and tie under your hair.
5. Tie at the neck as a neckerchief.
