little tea rose collar


this used to be a silk dress shirt. (i got it at the clothes show london)

it sat in my wardrobe for months... until today when i had an idea.

what if i cut it into long strips...

and used all the pieces to make ruffles...and ruffles...and ruffles

and then sewed them all together into a little tea rose collar?

answer: id have a little tea rose collar.
i think it looks good with a black slip
or maybe a t-shirt?

Your blog is like a breath of pretty fresh air.

Where I'm from fashion is so Americanised. In a terrible cheap way.
