This post can either be called really late or slightly early. Either way, let’s just say timing isn’t my strong point…(>.<)
My birthday is next week (eeee!), so as a surprise my friend organised for us to see Janelle Monáe live last Thursday. This was just the best surprise ever, as she is my favourite music artist at the moment, and is just awesome. (If you haven’t heard her yet, watch this. Then prepare to be in love ♥)
As with most surprises, this one came at short notice so my immediate thought was ‘What to wear?!‘ I did start making a simple shift dress with leopard print collar, but I was rushing and things were not going my way, so that idea was abandoned and I just stuck to the collar. Making a detachable collar has been on my mind for a while so I am pleased this idea finally came to life.
Actually it was so easy, this was finished in less than an hour (including making the pattern). I wore it over my gingham shift dress and the two patterns worked really well together, but it also works with many other pieces in my wardrobe – basically anything with a high neckline. I loved this collar so much, already there are more pattern pieces cut out waiting to be assembled. My peter pan collar obsession has reached new heights!
