Wednesday Wants

I’ve got another DIY Wednesday Wnts post for you this week. It features a trend that I have lusted after ever since it first appeared on the High Street, and is a pretty easy bit of customising to update any dress that needs a bit of a re-vamp!



 Tesco – £40, New Look – £21.99, Tesco – £18,  Missguided – £15.99, Miss Selfridge – £20, Missguided – £21.99
It was pretty easy to make my own version of a peter pan collar. I drew my own pattern by tracing half the edge-shape of the dress collar I wanted to customise – one of those floral Topshop tunics that everyone had a few summers ago and I stopped wearing – and made it out of some crushed black velvet material. It was simple!

 What do you think? Now I might actually start wearing this dress again!

    I love Peter Pan Collars. They are definitely an obsession I’m having right now.
