Pattern Description: DIY Collar Necklace

Pattern Sizing: Based on neck size 16"- 18". My neck is a 13 but I used the size 16. So measure your neck and finished size carefully.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Mostly..except I applied as an actual collar on an existing L/S t-shirt.

Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? The pattern was free with only 2 pattern pieces plus it was quick and somewhat rewarding to sew.

Fabric Used: cotton/gingham

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I attached the collar to a L/S t-shirt so I added about 5/8" to the bottom part of the collar stand. I then pinned the right side of the collar stand to the inside neckline of the t-shirt and sewed (the collar was upside down inside the t-shirt). I then stood the collar up (now the collar is in correct position), so the wrong side of the collar stand was facing the inside neckline of the t-shirt, then sewed again so there would be no raw edges.

Would you sew it again? Yes Would you recommend it to others? Yes

Conclusion: I used this pattern to help out with my Bargainista Fashionista Entry. What's better than free and fun? Also, it doesn't take very much material so it would be great for getting rid of scraps of material and interfacing.
