I have been dreaming about this project for a while and then, when I saw THIS I knew it was time to do something about it and make some removable peter pan collars for all sorts of outfits.
First things first, I LOVE peter pan collars. Like some serious love. I think I have put them on about half of the girl's dresses I have ever made, and the other half---well, I certainly debated it.
So, now we have some removable collars that can go on those dresses too! Wahoo! (Am I crazy? Ok, you really don't have to answer that. I know I am.)
And if there may be a chance that there are any other peter pan collar lovers out there......well, you might need this tutorial too to fill your whole wardrobe with them.
You will first need the pattern. Click HERE to use a pattern that I made....or you can use a commercial pattern if you have one. The "big girl" size is the one I used for my 6 year old, but if you need to make it bigger, you will simply add on to the "fold" edge until you get the length you want.
Ok, now that you have the pattern you are ready to get started....
And because I got so excited about the white one, I made another one with some orange flowered vintage fabric that I had. And this time, I didn't use ribbons--just a size one hook and eye at the front to keep it closed (and I am loving that it holds perfectly).
You want to know the other crazy part.....I cut out 5 more. I know, I know. But can you ever have enough peter pan collars? Seriously.
And one even more crazier thing....I adapted it for me. But I think I am way too old. But I still want to wear one. (I just need to get brave first.)
