Adding a detachable collar onto a top (tutorial)

17 Jan

Detachable peter pan collars have been a big fashion craze for a while now! I recently got a custom order to add a detachable lace collar onto a top. I thought it would be a great idea to put together a tutorial on this as its a great way to add a bit of detail to your tops!

What you will need: Scissors, sewing machine, thread, hand sewing needle, pins.

1

Step 1: lay the collar onto the neckline and mark with pins where the seam ends.

Step 2: you will be sewing this into the seam so you will need to remove the beads on the ends so they don’t get in the way whilst you’re sewing. The beads will be handsewn back on at the end.

Step 3: unpick the shoulder seam and tuck in the collar, you should have marked earlier where the collar will fit in. Sew the seam, as you can see it would have been difficult to sew with the beads in the way.5

Step 4: cut off the excess material.6

Step 5: hand sew back on the beads up until the seam.7

Step 6: the collar now needs to be fixed in place so pin it down at the neckline.8

Step 7: now hand sew with the same colour thread round the neckline.9

AND VOILA!!! 10
