so for a while now, miu miu have been playing with collars. the most recent evolutions have been plain, brightly coloured and worn with black long sleeved tops and skirts in contrasting hues to give a liquorice allsort feel. unlike liquorice though, i do like it very much and have copied it as best i could on cheapskate scale. i have been trying to make some more interesting versions more along the lines of these:.
and how i did it? simple.
1: go to a charity shop and find a shirt, mens shirts are fine. try to find one that buttons all the way up to the collar or youll have to sew one there yourself.
2: cut the collar off the shirt as neatly as possible.
3: iron the collar flat so its easy to decorate. (optional)
4: decorate! print off images on transfer paper or draw your own with fabric pens, or permanant marker.
5: iron the collar back into shape if needed.
6: wear your collar and receive many compliments for your (not even that hard) work.
