ModCloth Inspired // The Butterfly Collar





I love to cruise around ModCloth looking for pretty knockoff ideas. I instantly fell in love with their Retro Bike Ride Top. I mean, just look at that collar! 






Someday I would love to do a true knockoff of this blouse, but this was my version so I could practice drafting the collar. If I ever figure out a way to upload the pattern, I'll make that available and do a full tutorial. 










And I couldn't resist paring it with the matching skirt I made last year.






So um, yeah, recognize that fabric??? 


That sheet has gone so far.


Addendum: I realized after naming it the "butterfly collar" that there already is a collar style by that name. But mine totally looks more like a butterfly. So there.

  25. Your collar does look like a butterfly and I think it's the perfect name. I love the skirt with it too. Such an adorable outfit. Thanks for linking up at Doodles & Stitches!

  26. I love, love this! I'm so impressed with your sewing skills. I feel like I'm good at projects and being creative, but I can't do those made-from-scratch sewing projects like that. Also, I'm passing on the Leibster Award to you! Here's the post:

  27. The collar is adorable, Kaitlin! And it looks terrific against the black top...paired with the matching skirt. I think "butterfly collar" is a perfect name for it, by the way. ;)

    Thanks for linking to Time Travel Thursday. Hope to see you again this week.

    Blessings,
