I finished this project; New Look 6298 View C with braided collar.
I wanted to make a dress with a snood, but I didn't have enough fabric to make one! So I made a detachable collar instead.
This is How to make a braided collar:
Step 1: Please cut the fabric into 3 pieces with each piece being 3 inches wide and 1 3/8 yards long. Sew both sides facing each other. The seam is allowed to be off by 0.4 inches. Then turn it right-side out.
Step 2: Weave a braid
Step 3: Hide the end of the braids. Intertwine one of the braids through the tube of another braid.
Step 4: Sew 5 small loop on collar and 5buttons on the neckline.
It can be worn basic style, I like it too.If you will use thick fabric, I don't recommend that sew braided collar on the neckline directly...It's too hard to wash and dry! I have huge amounts of fabric leftover! I don't want to keep increasing small piece of cloth. But this idea is useful, I think.
Fabric: 45" 2 3/8
Total time spent: 6hours
