Question by little miss moonlight: how can i make a russian head scarf or kerchief?
hi! i just want to know how to make a head scarf typically worn by russian women. it’s called a platok (or incorrectly, a babushka).
i already have the fabric (it’s floral). the only problem i have is that i don’t know its shape when unfolded and the length and width of an average kerchief.
Answer by sue
I googled for platok and found this picture. and then these on eBay:
I would think you would measure how much scarf you want and cut on the bias of the fabric for the triangle, then cut the rest of it and do whatever fringing and other embellishments you would want.
