Again a first attempt. This time at a 60’s style standing collar! I love this fabric— the color, the pattern, and the texture. For this project, the most noteworthy thing I think is my braided belt. I think it brings a sense of handmade-ness to the rather straightforward dress.

    Love the standing collar too. I have been looking for a pattern for this type of collar – what did you use. I suppose I could make up a pattern but easier to have one done for me! In fact, if anyone could help me find Audrey Hepburn “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” style patterns, I would appreciate it very much.

    You do really good work, but I especially love this one, and I think your right, the braided belt really gives it something extra!
