make this : peter pan collar tee

PeterPanDIY15I am a big fan of Peter Pan collars. Especially after having short hair, I feel like a gamine-like collar and a pixie cut go hand in hand with one another. Not only do Peter Pan collars make your cut appear more feminine, but they also bring attention to your shoulders in a positive way and are a beautiful substitute for where longer hair would normally fall!

Finding a shirt with this type of collar is nearly impossible in the city where I live. Rather than buying yet another one online, I decided that this time I would simply make one. How hard could it be? It turns out that it wasn’t, just surprisingly involved for something so tiny. Yet, the results are priceless.

Here is what you’ll need to make your own Peter Pan Collar Tee:

Peter Pan DIY 13I chose a men’s small t-shirt for my project. Not only was it on sale for $5, but I absolutely adored the colour and it was the only plain tee that I could find in the store. It was also beneficial since I was able to cut it into a crop top, and use the extra fabric for the collar lining. To make it even more effeminate, I made the collar into a bateau neck and sewed the sleeves and the hem of the shirt with ivory thread into a ruched trim. I recommend using a t-shirt that is a little larger, since it will allow you to turn it into your perfect fairy tale top. Get it? Peter Pan … Fairy Tale? I’m so witty. ;-)))

Peter Pan DIY 12I hope you guys enjoyed this tutorial! My next project is to sew a shirt made entirely of lace.
