Adding a quick faux fur collar to a plain t-shirt or blouse can make any shirt ready to wear to a party. It is a very simple and quick project. This tutorial uses a child’s size t-shirt, but this can be used for any size shirt.
You’ll need a t-shirt or blouse, some faux fur fabric (you’ll need fur with some stretch if you’re adding it to a t-shirt) and Pellon Fashion Fuse interfacing.
Fold the t-shirt in half (front side out), matching shoulder seams. Pin the fold of the shirt at the neck edge on both the front and the back.
Open the shirt flat. The centers are marked with pins.
Move the shirt so that the center points are at the sides and the shoulders and sleeves are lying in the center of the shirt as show. Place the shirt on a large piece of drawing paper or Pellon Easy Pattern.
Trace the edge of the collar with a pen. Mark where the front and back of the collar are.
Draw the rest of the collar as desired. I used a Peter Pan (slightly curved) shaped collar. The collar can be any shape or width.
Add 1/2″ all the way around except at the back where the collar will be cut on the fold. This is the seam allowance.
A quick brush with a lint brush will remove any small bits of fur and your shirt is done!
