Ruffled Collar Shell

I made this fun, ruffled collar shirt to wear to church on Sunday for a  touch of Valentines. I LOVED wearing it and got so many compliments!

I’ll tell you more about it on Friday as the conclusion to my Sewing Simply series.

Like the mannequin? My friend, Lucy, was at the mall on Saturday and noticed a store that was going out of business and was selling its mannequins. She texted me. I stopped by on Sunday and picked it up for $12.50! WAY cheaper than any of the dress forms I’ve been drooling over.

Like the top, want one for yourself, but don’t want to do the sewing (even though I’ll teach you how on Friday)? You can purchase it (made to order) in my Etsy shop, Ruffles ‘n Such. Just click here to be taken directly to this top.
