DIY: Fancy Collars

Shirts seem to be a trend everyone is diving into right now, including me.  That preppy school girl is becoming cool again but there seems to be a twist. I’m seeing people buttoning their shirts right up to the top so the collar becomes a feature (see blog post here) and they’re not scared to get adventurous with it either. So here we’ve made our very own DIY where we’ve made the collar a little more decorative!

What you will need;

Measure the length of the collar and cut trim to size

Sew the trim around the collar


 Then style as you wish, we love it under cropped sweaters


And here’s a little idea to jazz a shirt up a little for holiday season; buy some iron diamond, decorate the edges and shine on!


Rings worn in photos are the asymmetric stone ring and the crystal wave ring
