Playing With Collars, again...


Recently I've been working on developing new blouse collar design variations. This "Crush Collar" is applied as a bias ruffle, then manipulated into folds that are tacked down randomly along the neck edge. The center-front placket is tucked from the wrong side to soften the extension and complete the softly random look of the garment.

Interesting blob. Too bad you chose a dark color. Impossible to see what's going on.

The "Interesting Blob Collar" has a certain ring to it..but...I think I prefer 'Softly Random' instead, LOL!

It's not always my intention to photograph a test garment, so I use whatever suitable fabric is at hand..whatever the color.

I love the look of this collar! How wide a ruffle did you use and what fabric is this?

Hi Carol...

The fabric is a very soft sandwashed silk. I started with a bias strip that was about 7" wide, folded it, gathered it into a ruffle, and then applied it to the neck edge. The random stitching down of the folds is the last step.

Thanks Pam! I thought it looked wonderfully soft - I love sandwashed silk! It's a great technique, I may have to try it myself ... if you don't mind.

Hi Carol...of course I don't mind! In fact, I'm flattered that you are going to try it!

In response to how dark the photo is: I found that when I copied the photo, pasted it into another application (Word) and printed it, it came out lighter and you can see the detail! Very beautiful collar!

PAM! This is wonderful!!!!!!!! Can I do it too? I don't understand what you said you did then on the center-fornt placket though...explain more please.

Hi Londa,
This is a 'convertible collar' fold-back facing...so...the CF would be a straight 90 degree angle, if I didn't manipulate it. What I did was simply turn it wrong side out, and at the CF point of the turnback, I merely ran a short line of tight gathering stitches. From the right site it looks "pinched and tucked" like the collar.
