Etsy search "vintage sewing pattern collar" brought this up and it filled me with awe. Who designed this? WHO BOUGHT THIS PATTERN, BOUGHT IT, MADE THE COLLARS AND WORE THEM? Imagine walking down the street and seeing someone with one of these collars on. Your reaction would probably be to a) look for their minder and b) avoid eye contact.

I think they cut the photos off at the nose because the model kept rolling her eyes. Still, even just her lips tell the thoughts going through her head:

B: "Okay, this is a little silly, but it's wearable, I guess."
C: "Wait, what?
D: "Oh, come on."
A: "I'm just going to pretend this isn't happening."
E: "I hate you."

The collar/dress combo is just perfect, too. Nothing says elegant and attractive like a shapeless dress to go with your enormous novelty collar!

Please go buy this pattern, make it and send me a photo of you wearing it in a public place.

P.S. The seller also has awesome patterns like this and this. I ain't hatin'!

What's wrong with those collars?

My best dress has a collar like one of those.
