diy eugenia kim chiara turban headband

November 19, 2012

This DIY (inspired by Eugenia Kim Chiara Turban Headband) is a great sewing project for beginners. It’s a basic rectangle shape with some pleating in the back and a knot in the front. I used cotton jersey but any other type of jersey (wool, rayon, silk) would work as well. 


[Cut a piece of jersey that’s 12 inches wide and 21 inches long]

[Fold the fabric in half lenghtwise- right sides together. Sew]

[This is what your fabric should look like. When you are finished, turn right side out]

[In the middle of the fabric create pleats by folding the fabric down and topstitching it. Make 4 pleats]
[Sew the 2 end pieces together]

[At this point, this is what the turban should look like. The pleats are in the back and the seam joining the 2 sides together is in the middle of the front]
[The next step is to create a knot that covers up the middle seam and gathers the fabric together. Cut a piece of jersey that is 5 inches wide and 10 inches long]

[Fold in half lengthwise, right sides together. Sew seam and turn inside out]
[Make a loose knot]

[On the inside of the turban, stitch down one end of the knot]
[Fold the end over (to hide the raw edge) and stitch the end on top of the other one. That’s it- all done!]

      I bought it at Mood in NYC. I don't think they have the exact fabric on their website but there are plenty of other great ones-
      Thanks for reading x
