Vision Accomplished – Bow Collar

Sunday, February 26, 2012

Pinterest is really fueling my creativity in sewing. I could, and probably do, spend hours just soaking up the inspiration. Take this collar for instance. Don’t you just love that feminine detail? Well, I had to try to recreate it.

I used my trusty New Look 6845 pattern to begin with. Starting with this idea for drafting a collar, I made up on my own pattern pieces. I learned a lot, and I would do some things different next time. If I do sew this up again, I’ll put together a full tutorial.



I thought the contrast of the geometric print by Sis Boom fabric(Poodle Collection) and the feminine white bow made for a fun combination. I’m thinking of making a sort of blog series when I put something like this together totally inspired by someone else's work. So look for more “vision accomplished” posts to come.
Avery has a special Daddy date night tomorrow night, so she really “needed” a new dress. Can’t wait to get those sweet photos tomorrow!
