DIY Lace Peter Pan Collar Necklace

Peterpan collars can turn your outfit from drab to effortless elegance. 

Here's an extremely simple DIY you can whip up in less than 15 minutes.

You will need
(these were just lying around in my house, but feel free to substitute and make this your own style)
- cloth (20x20)
- lace (40cm)
- string
- button
- cutout stencil

Now, time to get sewing!

Cutout a stencil (measure this against your own neck/template, as everyone has a different shaped body)

Pin down the stencil, and cut around it

Repeat, for the other side

To ensure clean edges, I pinned down the section I wanted to sew over. Allow yourself a little bit of room, depending on how confident you are with a sewing machine

Nice neat edges!

Get ribbing, and grab a bit of ribbon and sew it down to the edge of the half moon shape

Lace it up next,

Here I let the two pieces of lace overlap after I sewed them onto the collar, as the button I'm using next is going to cover it up anyway

And now I present you: Simple easy DIY Peter Pan Collar!
