Puff collar #2 - a work in progress

i love my purple collar but i really wanted
to make something bigger

so i bought a plain man's t-shirt to cut up and experiment with,
i bought a size M because they were out of XXL
but
i've managed to get twenty-four
various sized puffs out of it!


here is the start of the collar pinned together

and here i am trying it out for size


this time i wanted to extend it to the shoulders and chest, so while i was still wearing it, i continued pinning on more puffs till i was happy with the shape

i still have a few puffs to add and a bit of fine tuning
to do before i start stitching it all together,
as this is all hand-sewn it is pretty time consuming and i'm having a break from it today!



i'm really happy with how this collar
has taken shape -
it's kinda hard to know where to stop so it's good i've run out of fabric!
