#18 DIY, HOW TO MAKE A POINTY PETER PAN COLLAR (EASY)

Hey there!
Today I will show you how I made this really cute peter pan collar dress! I think that peter pan collars are classic, timeless and always looking really cute! In this post I will show you the basics of making a peter pan collar. You can always add some other cute stuff on the collar, for example lace or pearls. Or you can make a round peter pan collar or.. whatever. You can also add the peter pan collar to a top or blouse, you don't have to add it specifically to a dress. Just play around with it. In this tutorial I will make a pointy peter pan collar :) Enjoy <3


What you'll need:
- Fabric
- Needle & thread
- Scissors
~
- Paper
- Pencil
- And of course a dress or whatever you want to put on it.


Let's start!
1. So the first thing you need to do is sketching the peter pan collar on a piece of paper. Fold the paper in half and start measuring the sides of the collar of your dress.


2. Make a random point at the bottom and connect it to the top left and around the middle right part just as on the picture. Then cut it out.


3. Now cut the paper in half and switch their position (the right piece goes to the left and the left piece is now at the right). Rotate the pieces as on the picture and fold them in half again. If your collar looks a little bit too pointy you can always cut them shorter or whatever. Fix until you're happy with it.


4. Place both pieces on to your dress. If they look a bit strange then fix it. If not continue with the next step.


5. Now cut the same piece but then on black fabric. You'll need 4 pieces in total.


6. Place two pieces together and sew the bottom, left and right part of it. You can also use a sewing machine for this step. The top part had to be open, because after this we're going to fold it inside out.


7. Fold both pieces inside out.


8. Sew both pieces on to the dress. Place both pieces on to the dress and fold the other part inside the dress. Sew it like the picture here below. Then sew a straight line on both pieces.


9. Add some stuff to it if you want and then you're done!


I hope you like it. For any requests, leave them in the comments down below.
Stay tuned for more posts soon. And as always,

Have a great day <3
