You guys i had so much fun this week looking through all the projects in the Megan Nielsen patterns Flickr group!! Thanks to everyone who has shared projects – I am blown away!

Anyway, I just love this Banksia that Louise made. She ran out of fabric so redrafted the collar – and i have to say, i really adore this small subtle collar! Isn’t it gorgeous?

And seriously, cat buttons? Could that be any more awesome? I think i need to start adding more quirky buttons to my projects!

Thanks for sharing your top in our group Louise!! Check out the rest of her sewing projects here – soooo many completely gorgeous pieces of clothing!!

Louise looks great! Buttons definitely add a touch to any garment but cat buttons? It can’t get any cuter!

[…] I’m calling this one a faux shawl collar because it gives the appearance of a shawl collar without actually being one. That was worded strangely but i think you know what i mean hehehe. It should look quite similar to this one. […]
