Diy time, how is everyone? So I've been meaning to post up some diys lately but I've kinda been lazing around since the school holidays started. I've written my to-do list, it's so long it's not even funny. Last night, I got off the phone with my two bums :) (who doesn't love 'conference calls'?) and they asked why I hadn't blogged in a while, I told them I was doing maths hw ): which I was ):
Nyways so, this diy post is the peter pan collar, so many people have already done diy videos/posts on this, so I though I might as well do one too, plus I really wanted to make one.
You will need:
- white cotton fabric, lace works as well, or felt.
If you use felt, you don't need to hem the edges, but I you use cotton you may want to.
Note: I don't hem mine cause I'm a lazy butt, but by hemming the fabric the ends won't fray, which means the collar will be more 'wear and tear' resistant.
- white ribbon
I couldn't find any silky ribbon around my house so I opted for cotton ribbon.
- a white button
- needle and thread that matches your fabric
- mini pearls (optional)
I decided to include a pearl ontop of my button to give my collar a little edge and elegance
Okay, time to make ourselves a fashionable collar!
Step 1: Draw a collar-shape on your fabric with a light pencil, I just eye-ed mine but you can find printable template online if you wish.
Step 2: Cut out your fabric, because I winged mine I only drew half of my collar.
Step 3: If you winged yours and used a template skip this step, but here I placed my half-collar on top of the fabric and cut out another piece.
Step 4 : So now we have our two collar pieces, place them in your prefered position.
Step 5: Hand-sew on your button to secure the two pieces of fabric in place.
Step 6: So now it should look a little something like this, now because I winged mine the ends of the collar look really awkward.
Step 7: Flipping it over, I fold down the two ends and prepare my white ribbon.
Step 8: By hand sewing the ribbon onto the ends of the collar, you can now tie the collar with the ribbon when you wear it.
And done, now wear it over a sweater or a dress or just a simple top. Enjoy and goodluck!
