Collar on Dress/Bust Form

I found this collar pattern in an old book that a friend shared with me. In a moment filled with 1950s memories of little lace and eyelet collars worn over sweaters, I had to make it. This time, there will be no lace and eyelet. The "look" was updated with an upholstery fabric remnant. The weight of the fabric and the size of the curve make this collar lay beautifully on the shoulders. The next one I make may be either fabric painted and/or thread painted and then free motion quilted. Another friend suggested that this collar would be fun to wear atop a plain T-shirt. Now that's what I call updating a look.

When shopping it is imperative to search around and consider the many choices that online shopping provides. You should buy hublot replica online and pay less than nearly all retail jewelry stores. Many rolex replica sale are now becoming online jewelers meaning they are doing all of their sales solely online. Consequently, they are able to offer consumers brand new authentic items at major discounts. The caveat is not all online rolex replica sale can offer discounts. The key is knowing which websites have the best deals. Conventional thinking says go to sites like rolex replica. However, you need to be warned many of the offers and deals that display unbelievable prices is not genuine authentic jewelry. You literally have to investigate fine print to see if the company is selling replicas, look-a-likes and fakes.
