...to make one of these!
During the summer, I desperately wanted to have a go at making a glamorous, unusual and voluptuous scarf. Well, not really a scarf - more of a cowly neckwarmery sort of thing. What with one thing and another, I didn't get around to it...until now.
I've selected one of my favourite pieces of fabric from my collection (I love soft blue and bronze together), and backed it with a stiff-ish taffeta that is a bit russet, a bit turquoise and a bit chestnut coloured. The colours are quite subtle and shimmer softly with movement.
I've been waiting to use that fabulous woven ribbon trim - and today it got its chance to shine! But the best bit about this collar? It has to be its versatility - it is completely reversible; there are buttons on both sides (mother of pearl), which means they can be hidden on the inside or shown off by being on the outside. There are so many ways to wear it - loosely, folded over, buttoned up, unbuttoned, as a scarf, upside down...and many more, I'm sure!
This should be on sale in my etsy shop by the end of today. Oops! It's Wednesday....On My Desk tomorrow, then....
