Was attempting to make it look like lace/eyelet...not sure about it yet. Considering putting these leaves and red beads on top if I continue with this eyelet idea. Am afraid my collar will be too much whiter than the vineyard silk I used in the body. Also thought about applique collar with a stitched holly trim on top and possibly crochet the edging myself or just tack on a pre-made edging.....stay tuned for this one.
Love the way everything else turned out but mostly just because I loved stitching it. Was relaxing and quick and fun.
Here is how the Mr. turned out. Very simple stitching made it super relaxing and enjoyable to stitch. Sometimes I just tire of stitching detail and need something like these.
My plan is to use white angora fiber for the trim on his and white pearl trim on hers when finishing.
