D.I.Y. Detachable Collars

After months of neglect, the wardrobe has gotten a clean-over. Clothes that have overstayed their welcome were given away, and some are currently stored in a paper bag awaiting their alteration at yet-to-be-known tailor shop. Then there were two pieces that had collars ready for 'harvest'. Detachable collars have been all the rage since f/w last year and there are a lot of nice ones sold online or at those small carefully-curated boutiques on the sixth floor of SW, but the prices are just ridiculous. I don't get how one piece of accessory can cost around RM60? Now I can have two here. And both pieces of clothing were not even expensive.

1. Cut along the seams. The button part is needed too.

2. Snippety snip. This feels like art class all over again.

3. This is cut off from an old long sleeve school shirt. I wore it once and then they forbid us from wearing long sleeved shirts. -.- Still thinking whether I should sew faux pearls on it. Simple looks kinda nice too though. Hmm. Decisions decisions.

4. My favourite! Of all the collars available online, there's not one that is denim or studded like mine. :D This would go perfect with simple white tees or dark colour knit tops.
