It seems like ruffle collars have been all the rage these days, doesn’t it?!?!?
No matter whenever or by whomever that began the ruffle collar trend, they are downright cute, aren’t they??
Using the Children’s Corner, Lillian, we sewed CL a size 5 and added a ruffle collar for a slight variation of the pattern.
The ruffle was cut 4″ wide, and folded in half to sew to the dress. The finished width was 1 3/4″.
And, while this modification worked for a fine fabric, the bulk of other fabrics don’t lend themselves to this modification.
Instead one would need to add a bias band around the neck to help the collar lay better on the child.
Although CL loved her new dress, it was LG that was practically drooling over it. She even had to get in on the “photo shoot” and have some pictures made of her in the dress. She continues to eye the dress in sister’s closet and discuss “when she is going to get to wear that dress.”
We are going to have to keep our eye on this niece – she has some expensive taste!
