Lace Collar Necklace - ModCloth Handmade Contest

Added Dec 21, 2010

England, United ...






I made a lace collar necklace using a lace collar I bought from a market and the chain was bought online a while ago from My Vintage Charms. I carefully sewed the two together with a beading needle since it was small enough to fit through the links in the chain.

The necklace is a present to myself because I’ve been searching for detachable collars for a while and didn’t think about how easy it was to make until now.

The Modcloth item that would complement this necklace would be the Delightfully Warm Tights in Oatmeal.

Material Notes

18" gold chain

Cream lace collar




Garment Type
Romantic, Vintage

    OOH!! I have a gorgeous lace collar and have been wanting to make it a necklace/detachable collar but could not settle on exactly how. This is a really neat idea! Did you do something to stiffen the collar though?

      I didn’t do anything to the collar. I just used it as I bought it. I don’t think it had been treated beforehand. It feels just like standard lace to me.

      Pictures would be nice if you make one yourself. I’d love to your take on it.

      I have some very delicate vintage lace collars, hand crocheted by Belgian nuns! My mum and I bought them way back when I was about 5 or 6. I don’t have the heart to use them on just a single garment. I’m trying to figure a nice way to make them into a removable collar. Will definitely post pics when I’m done. :)

    Clever idea…I too have a vintage 1950s collar….maybe I need to sew it to t-shirt.
