Moda de la Mode Makes...A Carven Inspired Shirt

After going for an interview for an internship last month, I have since become obsessed by the idea of decorating shirt collars. This may have something to do with the beautiful Carven shirt that was worn by Stephanie, my interviewer and the Fashion Director of the company. 

As you can see the shirt collar is just exquisite and adds an elegant finish to the everyday boring black shirt. The concept is really simple and you can decorate your collar any way you like and with anything you like.

Here is how I made mine:

You Will Need:

  • A selection of beads and sequins
  • A plain shirt of your choice
  • Any key embellishments (I used an embellished ribbon from Liberty that I cut up)
  • A needle and clear thread

1) Sew on the two main embellishments onto the corners of your shirt.
2) Next, begin to sew on the beads and sequins to the surrounding areas
3)Make sure both sides are equal and that you do both sides at the same time to make sure you have enough beads.
4)Sew another main embellishment to the back of the shirt
5)Sew the beads and sequins around this so that they all match up
6) Cut off any loose threads and there you have it...a Carven inspired shirt.
