White Peter Pan Collar

I love the Peter Pan collar style, but it's hard to find, especially at a decent price.
I decided to try to add one to a dress myself.
Started off with a plain gray shift dress.
And a couple of linen vintage dollies, one round, one long oval, each cut in half.
Pinned them on to the dress - folded the inside under twice, to make it look neat.
This is the long oval on the back.
Sewed along the edge. Added a few buttons from my button stash.
And there you have it. Instant Peter Pan collar.
