I have had a couple of comments on my collars when I’m wearing them in public, one being is “giving Pilgrim Vibes”, the other one is others saying they’re not sure they could rock that and that’s okay, they’re not everyone. It’s completely up to you whether you want to do a nice plain one like in white which would look really nice just to add an accent to your outfit. Or a black one if you’re going out just to add a little bit of ruffle on top of like a black shirt or something. Even my kids are loving them and want me to make them some too.

MY THOUGHTS: So These bad boys took about 45 mins to an hour to make which I think is pretty good going. I would say you need to pick your materials carefully because I tried to do a ruffle with a thicker cotton and the threads kept snapping so if you’re going to make one stick to the lighter fabrics.

I am so obsessed I am going to make HUNDREDS of different colours and sizes of these detachable collars and wear them with everything!!!!

Big hugs, Phili -x-
