White Wednesday

My pal at October Farm found these great vintage white collars on one of her thrifting excursions. And she sent them to me! She knew I would love them - and I do.
The smaller one has pretty cutout details.
They are in absolutely perfect condition - I don't think they have ever been used.
Details on the back too.
And a pretty pearl closure.

The larger one has a beautiful shape - it will look so pretty over a gray or blue dress.

I used some linen doilies to make this collar and attached it to a shift dress. But I am very excited to have actual collars that can be worn with different outfits.
Thanks October Farm!

  4. ha! i never even took them out of the bag. plus, i forgot i sent them to you! they look great!

  5. I guess these ARE vintage now, aren't they? I used to have several, in fact - - - they MAY still be up in my dresser drawer, all sad and lonely.
