On to this week’s foulard: yes, it’s the truly gorgeous “Billets-Doux” scarf by Ashley Ashoff, which I first admired a couple weeks ago. Despite my protestations about being over budget for clothing purchases this month, I succumbed to the lure of its pure blue color and words of love. It arrived late last week, but we were having quite the heat wave, and yesterday was the first day it was cool enough to wear it.
I first tried it on tied loosely like a man’s tie.
But the fabric is so fluid and drapes so nicely, and the pattern so pretty, I decided to show it off to better advantage: This is another variation on the “bib” with that the ends left hanging loose in front. You can also secure by running both ends through a scarf ring in the back if you don’t want to have to continually readjust.
