Hello everyone!

Last weekend, finally set on a long, brown jersey shirt that had been in my closet for the longest time. It's served me faithfully for quite a while, and I wanted to jazz her up for a bit. At first, I wanted to cut off the bottom part of the shirt and attach the excess to my sleeves, but after reading a bit on dressing the hourglass figure, I decided to fiddle around with the collar!

So here it is. I like how the colors pop out against the brown background. Note: when working with jersey or other knitted fabrics, go easy on the edging stitch, or else the ends will go all curly -- unless that's the effect you want. ^_^"

On to the links!

thanks for looking!  Smiley

That's a cute idea. What does the back look like?

In the end, only kindness matters.

Hallo! So sorry for the delayed reply.  Sad

Well, the back collar slopes around the shoulder too and ends at the level of the original neck collar. I made sure it sloped as naturally as possible.
