We have a break in The Collar Project schedule today so I thought I would share some additional collar looks that I have been collecting from here and there. May these be additional inspiration for you!

I've mentioned before that the detachable collar is a great way to use small amounts of treasured fabrics, like Liberty.  To use even less, use a different fabric for the underside of the collar (which isn't typically seen when worn).  Here is a ready to wear version from Claudine & Compagnie featuring Liberty Tana Lawn:

Or perhaps you have some small print vintage fabric on your stash that you would like use:

Crochet and knitting have long been applied to decorative collars. Here is a lovely one in classic cream and black crocheted by One Sheepish Girl using a free pattern created by Lulu Loves:

For a less traditional look, there is this one by Good Night, Day (found via Fringe Association). I think this would look nice over a coat too.

Until Monday, happy sewing!
