My latest obsession are ruffle collars. I wanted to have one that's quite plain (black cotton fabric, minimum lace) but still dramatic. After a few tries I ended of with this and I really like how it turned out:



But let's start at the beginning. I drafted a pattern and wanted to test it first - but I hate cutting fabric just for testing a pattern, it seems like such a waste. That's why I chose an interesting fabric, (roughly) serged the edged with zig-zag stitch and decorated the finished piece with some striped fabric.
Although the pattern didn't quite look like I wanted it the collar is cute and wearable I think ^^


After that I changed the pattern a bit, the next test was done with black cotton fabric. This time I used a serger for the edges, but they don't look much neater than the zig-zag ones  Grin
As you can probably see this is the final pattern - I used it again to make the last version of the collar with neat edges =)


The next collars were done a few days before.
The first one is made of organza with little velvet polka dots. It can be closed with satin ribbon in front or back.




This one turned out a bit too small:


The last two were made of tulle, lace, organza... a lot of fabric scraps I had in my stash, actually. I simply cut and gathered irregular stripes, I think they look gorgeous =)

I was just thinking "What would be the best way to wear these?" and then saw your post and I think you're right on!

I'd like to seem them with something.  I was thinking tone-on-tone with a high crew neck t-shirt (no skin in between) or over a sheer overlay sort of a shirt.
