Simple DIY Collar


This is just a quickie to show you a really simple DIY I did the other week.

Take one old stiff-collared shirt; this may or may not be a cheap rag you bought to dress up as a slutty school girl for freshers week and, depressingly, no longer fits *cough*.

Then simply snip the collar off! Use fabric scissors and cut really close to the seam to make the edges look tidy.

And voila!

Poor photo taken on my phone!

I added a collar chain that I picked up for around £3 from Forever 21 but for a more permanent fixture, you could add studs or sequins.

Here's some inspiration...
Stud collar, £15, Asos

Cross embellished collar, £15, Asos

Studded collar, £29, Etsy
And there you have it! Gives plain tops a bit of an update and they're much cheaper to do yourself!

Have you customised anything lately?
