Coming soon T-shirt Turban

I've been asked by The Guardian to submit a project for their craft section - so I've sent in my T-shirt turban, which you'll be able to see on-line at the end of September. It's SO simple to make. In just under an hour, you'll have yourself a very modish 1940's style hat.

Discussing the turban with a friend of mine, she asked whether I'd seen Grey Gardens - a film based on the eccentric story of an Aunt and first cousin of Jackie Onassis. Little Edie and Big Edie Bouvier Beale lived together in a rambling, crumbling pile in the East Hamptons - their inimitable style, unique relationship and slightly crazed existence becoming the focal point of the film. These head-scarf wearing, cat loving eccentrics revelled in the decadent decay they'd chosen to embrace. Thus whilst kitten shit may have encrusted the floors, they would skip over it dressed up to the nines! Whilst their titfer of choice was the headscarf rather than the turban, it's definitely a look they'd do. So get going with your turbans ladies. TRUE GLAMOUR NEVER FADES!
