During a very creative mood I decided to make this pretty lace collar.
I bought a metre of this black trim from Fan (an amazing textiles shop opposite RD Franks, just off Oxford Street) and I bought the velvet ribbon from Paperchase.
I cut the lace to size then weaved the ribbon throughout the gaps evenly, leaving enough at both ends to tie it in a bow.
Or makes a nice statement peice with a strapless dress for the evening.
Of course you can use cream lace, or any colour you can find for that matter. It's a nice, cheap way of adding some pretty detail to your outfit.
