Studio Sunday: Collars.

Posted on: Sunday, 12 August 2012

This weekend in my studio I have been working more on my A/W collection. I am trying to create a more diverse collection. I find myself stuck to pretty dresses with full skirts & snazzy prints. Don't get me wrong, I love those types of dresses, but I want to have a more choice & substance to my garments, especially when it comes to A/W, as we all need something practical & warm that we can wear in different ways.

For this particular dress I have been experimenting with organic cotton denim. It has a beautiful weight - not to thick, a little bit of stretch & a great rich red colour.


This is the basic shape of the dress - it will end up a simple, but elegant & wearable shift dress. However, I am adding a collar, because I love collars, & I want to add something to make it stand out & feel special.


Here are some samples & testers of collars. I was playing around with embroidery, it really adds the detail that I have been craving.
 

Which one is your favorite? I just can't decide!

PS: I wasted about an hour & a half earlier faffing about with HTML to make some little buttons (on the left). So, I finally figured it out & I hope they work. If you wanna grab one for your blog feel free :)

  1. 2 and 3 are my favorites, but I like style number two the most. It's the most classy.

  18. Number 1 is definitely my favorite! If collars could be open-hearted, this one would definitely be one great open-hearted collar. On the other hand, if you aim for a more "serious" dress, number 4 is plain, simple and elegant. I guess it all comes down on what kind of feeling you want your dress to inspire!
