I’m totally obsessing over this collar! It turned out just as planned on the first time, which doesn’t happen too often! I think this kind of collar is great for costumes, but if it’s not overdone can be nice for an everyday piece. The collar really inspired this whole dress. I’ll show you how to make the whole dress. I am providing the pattern pieces I drafted for myself, so if you’re about the same size, like a Medium, you can use these pieces! If not, just adjust them bigger or smaller to your liking.
