I don't normally refashion men's clothing. I guess I'm selfish and get more excited about dresses and things that are pretty. However, I think this collar makeover may have changed the way I feel about about menswear (at least a little bit). The 70's collar had to go. I really love how it turned out!
How I did it:
I unstitched the collar from the neckline. Then, I removed the collar and flipped it inside out. Once it was inside out, I mapped out and measured the width I wanted the collar to be. Then I sewed the new collar shape. I flipped it right side out, carefully pinned it back into the neckline, and stitched it back into place. Lastly, I stitched about 1/4 inch around the perimeter of the collar to give it the finished look.
A very timely process, but definitely worth it. This shirt is now updated and super wearable!
