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.
