Vintage collars! Yes, In addition to creating my own collars (and I have another tutorial coming for one soon!) I love to collect them. The delicate crochet, a bit of tatting around a crisp cotton fabric, the subtle aging of the white... it all lures me in. And then as I put it around my neck it transforms my plain t-shirt into something stylish. I definitely need this on days when I don't want to "waste" (I am weird I know) wearing my cute clothes because no one will see me but Olivia and Franc. If I have to run out the door, I can just throw on a collar and at least I feel a semblance of my old fashionable self!
(That is what happened on the day I took that photo above. Oh and that wasn't really a collar in the first place. It was a tatted triangular doily and I just added a little hook and eye to make it a collar. You can also wear vintage handkerchiefs this way, or just tie them.)
