Description

A Nautical look is in vogue year in and year out. At Pinterest I saw a funny fashion idea: a collar made of an old men’s tie. I had a trie on this with a turquoise collar with a funny shark print. My reinterpretation of a nautical look. To make this collar was quite easy: the tie has to be layed in pleats with some needle stitches and then you can pimp a white shirt with it, additional you can stitch on golden anchor buttons. My collar is just fixed with a few small safety pins on the shirt’s neckline, so that I can wash the shirt separately. Works best on a shirt with wide neckline.

Have a nice day, Philo
