I bought a beautiful silk fabric that I want to turn into a light, decorative headscarf. I thought I would just cut a rectangle, finish the edges, done. But then I realized the fabric is single-sided. The fabric has areas that are sheer, with thicker areas that form the pattern. It also is VERY colorful, with almost every color of the rainbow, including black and gray areas, that burst out into each other.
A simple rectangle would look shabby then, right? Since you would see the rough side when it's tied certain ways.
A) cut two rectangle pieces and sew them together along the edges? Will be full of air then, and the loud colors might clash from behind at the sheer areas.
B) Do option A but do some topstitching in a decorative way to keep the two pieces together, like quilting?
C) Put something (a plain fabric) in between the pieces? Seems it will be too thick then and lose the flowy, light quality. But the colors would probably look nice against a background.
