Making a Harlequin lace collar
First I cut out 7 arrow shapes like this one (each one is about 8cm at its widest and 15cm at its longest point)
I hemmed them with a basic blanket stitch
I added a bead at the bottom of each spoke (that’s not the right word but can’t think of a better one) to weigh them down slightly and give them the right shape.
Then I gathered the collar at four points to create a kind of ruche effect.
And finally sewed on the button, making a clasp-type thing out of some ribbon.
