1  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Evil Queen Collar on: May 05, 2014 01:07:17 PM
Hi all!

Long time reader and first time finally posting here. hopefully this is in the right spot...

So I'm cobbling together an Evil Queen get up and am using a Snow White pattern I have for the cape.

I plan to make it look a wee bit more sinister by shaping the collar more pointy and adding a fur trim around the hem. I'm also going to be hot gluing a bunch of feathers to the collar so my concern is keeping the collar upright. The pattern says to simply use interfacing but with the added feathers weighing it down I'd like to reinforce it more.

Making it even more difficult on my rudimentary skills- I'd like the collar to slightly curve outwards rather than shoot straight up.

I've been researching boning vs. wires. and am clueless how to make that happen.

Also, any tips on best fabric to use? I don't really care as it will be covered with feathers. It will be white however and the underside will show- not sure yet if I'm going to put feathers on that part.

I'd appreciate any sage counsel!

thanks
