Thank you so much, everyone Smiley

Yes, the buttons can be unlooped - in which case the collar lies flat on the button-up side of the neck and rolls over on the other.

Wow, I'm floored. Beautiful.

So I take it from your materials that they are pretty soft? they must be wonderful to wear!

It looks really profesh!
 Cheesy

Hah, thank you Smiley But that's not really the word that would come to mind if I posted a closeup of some of these seams! Hey, err, it's handmade, right?

I was browsing around the forums a couple of weeks ago and came across the amazing work of Joodito (please search for her stuff if you haven't seen it already!). She put high collars on my brain, and they haunted me everywhere from Anthropologie to the costume design in Stardust, so I decided to try my hand at one.

I made this out of a 4XL men's sweatshirt I got for $3 at this store called Roses in North Carolina (which I've just moved out of  Sad ) I didn't take a before picture (cursing self) but believe me, you would have been amazed. The body of thing was - I measured - ONE YARD wide. Since the armholes were very rudimentary, the shoulders actually came down to my elbows when I wore it!

Anyway, the only seam remaining is the shoulder. The collar has been made (haphazardly) from one of the trimmed sides. I had to add the cuff to the sleeves because, miraculously, the original sleeves were slightly too short when joined in the manner shown. The dimensions were just based off of other garments I had, allowing for ease when worn over other clothes.

The loop closures for the buttons were made with braided yarn, and that's embroidery floss embellishing the edges.


Comments and criticisms welcome!

Cute. I love it, especially your strategic placement of non-translucent fabrics!

I love this - it looks faboo with the sweater. If it were me, I'd feel a little, uhh, "safer" with a halter strap. Fantastic job!

Ohhh, I love it. That fabric is amazing.

PS, can I have your house? Wink

OMGS, please make a kangaroo pocket. Does yoda have kangaroo pocket? because that's how I remember him.

In all seriousness, I love the size and dimensions of the hood. Did you just scale a normal hood up? Or extend the front of it?
