I love collars !

A few days ago I went to a thrift shop in Enschede and I bought a few things, including a cute knitted sweater. I thought it was a little boring, so I added a self-made crochet collar. I just crocheted a piece of lace out of a '70s book about 19th century crocheting, knitting, etc. Then I ironed it and sewed the collar in place by hand.

I just love collars of any kind. Whether they are antique, handmade or brand new : Ijust love them.

I think a collar adds a touch of class to certain dresses. Do you like collars ? Let me know :).



- Love, Jip.-

If you love Victorian collars here's some sites on ebay that specialize in Victorian reproductions. One of them has a burgundy-ish civil war dress I really want!! :)
