DIY Detachable Collar + Splash of Colors

After my melodramatic posts, I am now back to normal, thus, a colorful outfit post to lighten up the mood. :)


This is extra special because:
1.) The dress was gifted by my friend, Gail.
2.) I was inspired to sew a detachable collar, because of the orange skirt. (I sew by instinct)
3.) I love the color combination of hot pink and tangerine..and
4.) The splash of blue made it more lively.

Hmmm, does that even make sense? Anyway, here it is..

I've been wanting to try a tangerine/hot pink combo in a subtle way. My fab friend, Gail, surprised me with this dress yesterday and I am more than thrilled! It looks like a 2-piece outfit but it's a dainty one-piece dress. When I went home, the excess fabric of my first project in Sewing was peeking out in a plastic bag. It was more than enough to construct a detachable collar. I snatched one polo from my cabinet and figured out how it was sewn. I made the pattern myself. It's not perfect, but definitely wearable.

May you have a colorful weekend!! :)

  11. What an eye-catching attire. I couldn't pull off that look hehehe. Di bagay sa kin, lalo ang orange/tangerine. I would disappear in the bright color kasi morena ko hehehe. It looks good on you, though. :-) Love the shoes!
