Tuesday Tip: No-sew peter pan collar tutorial!
Evening all! Cutting it very fine to get this tip posted on a Tuesday. The pressure!!
A pretty straightforward (I think!) tip to create a peter pan collar that doesn't require technical skill or money! Obviously it's no sew in the fact that you don't need to hem fabric in order to make the collar like in other tutorials, but you will need to sew it on to the top/dress afterwards! But if you're a total sew-phobe, you can always pin/glue it on!
You will need:
Some lace (preferably with a hem, like in the pic)
Top coat nail polish
Peter pan collared clothing as a template (optional)
1. Cut the lace into 2 pieces long enough to sit at the neckline of your top (it can stop just behind the shoulder or go all the way round, up to you!)
2. Round off the edges with scissors.
3. Dab top coat on the very edges that you've snipped to prevent fraying.
4. Sew on top a tee or dress, and you're good to go!!
Hope you like the tip, here's a vid 'tutorial' too, although it is rather simple anyway! :)
