That fur collar is just fantastic. Here’s how to sew a collar and how to make a collar lie flat. It’s so soft and warm and sophisticated and she loves it. She calls it her puppy dress because it feels like petting a puppy. I did topstitch the front two inches of the collar to keep the fur from getting up in her chin and mouth. (I also love my daughter’s BLUE eye in this picture. I forget how truly blue her eyes are.)
I wish I could have made this a long sleeved dress because it’s winter, but this was as long as I could make the sleeves. It’s great with a cardigan though with the fur collar peaking over top.
