ダブルカラ {double collar}

My first forray into the wonderful world that is Pattern Magic! I’ve been longing to make this collar for a while and finally had an excuse with a recent fashion show I did. I needed a masculine shirt, so what better way to to make it different than to throw in a sweet collar! This is also one of the first garments I ever draped, and let me tell you – I need a better fitting dress form! The shirt worked on the runway, but I hope no one ever examined it’s fit closely, because it was kinda of wacky due to the dress form. I needed to make this quickly (like in one night) so I left off the sleeves – tailoring cuffs was too large a challenge for me at that moment. I am a huge fan of the collar color – I just loved that blue color. I paired this with my “long pants” and my version of the Burdastyle bowtie (but the bowtie was worn in her hair :) ) The last pic is one from the runway show – we haven’t gotten the best images yet, but I think you can still get the idea.

Also! Apparently they now make these books in english….just after I bought them in Japanese :)
(And I think it is awesome that I can use japanese characters in the title!)

    Wow, I must admit that I underestimated that design. It really is quite something else, and your use of it is very lovely. Now it’s on my list of things to try. :)
