Recently, I tested out Simplicity 1727 - a pattern for a cute fashion collars. I recommend this pattern as a great way to use up smaller pieces of woven fabric that you may have left over from other projects. It's also a great way to showcase fancy buttons. This pattern comes with nine different views and provides options for small, medium and large sizes.
The great thing about this accessory, is that it can be worn in the summer with a t-shirt, or in the winter, over a sweater.
The pattern was easy to use and the instructions were easy to follow. I was able to sew up the collar seen here in under an hour. I chose to make a sample of 'View E' using a remnant of silk plaid fabric I had left over in my scrap pile.
