Watch and Learn Grasshopper - Peter Pan Collar
Learn How to Make Your Own Peter Pan Collar in 9 Easy Steps
Well, if you haven’t heard about the collar craze taking hold of the fashion world by now, check out some fantastic samples from the SYS - LookBook.
I did my first attempt very recently on a BurdaStyle blouse pattern. I can now proceed with using sequin fabric to style up my tops!
If you’d like to learn how it’s done, watch and learn grasshopper!
What you need:
- A blouse pattern - it’s best if you’ve used it before and know how it looks on you.
- if you don’t know how to sew or too lazy to sew (shame on you by the way! :P) you can use any shirt / blouse that you like and draw the neckline roughly
- a bias tape - or a fancy ribbon
Step 2: Following your first drawing, make up your mind about how long you’d like to have your collar and finish drawing.
Step 3: If you’d like to “decorate” your collar with a bias, preferably with a different color, make it ready.
Step 4: Using the pattern you made in Steps 1 & 2, cut 2 pieces of fabric.
Step 5: Pin the bias / ribbon onto the top collar fabric (on the right side)
Step 6: Either hand-stitch or machine stitch the bias/ribbon slowly onto the collar
Step 7: If your bias / ribbon is as thick as mine, carefully pin the other fabric piece on one another with right sides facing inwards
Step 8 : Now carefully sew them together. It would be easier if you follow the first stitch line.
Step 9: Once you finish sewing, turn them backwards and iron the stitch lines so that your collar will look neat once finished. You can now insert it onto your shirt / blouse or use it separately by simply leaving longer ribbons at both ends or by stitching a small press stud that can’t be seen on the outside.
