I've seen a lot of detachable collars lately, and I love the idea! I found this doily in my craft room that I thought would be perfect, so I played around with it and I think I made something pretty simple and wearable.
What you need:
- a doily
- about 2 feet of yarn
- embroidery thread and needle
The concept is pretty simple: cut the doily exactly in half. Use the yarn as the base for your collar, so you can measure where you want each half to start and end. Then fold over just the top parts of each doily half (the folded over part should be less than 1cm) and begin stitching it to itself and the yarn with the embroidery thread. You can use some clear nail polish or something if you think the ends will fall apart - I didn't have that problem but it's definitely a possibility depending on your doily.
I made mine intending to wear it with the tie part in the front, but I found that depending on the shirt, I can also wear it backwards. I just pinned the front part of this to the inside of my top and it stayed put really well.
Top and cardigan: F21 (a really long time ago)
