    I’d love the pattern for that gorgeous folded collar, is that a Burdastyle pattern? Great how-to, thankyou.

    this comes in very handy! I used to work at a bridal shop and we’d frequently do this to our bra cups if they were the wrong size or shape for the dress. If you need the cut edged finished, a serger works well. great how to!
