Searching through Trove the other day, I found this really cute sewing pattern for daisy petal collar and cuffs.
I’ve never seen a collar treatment like this in any modern drafting books. It could be used as is, or you can play with the shapes of the petals for a number of different effects. I think it would be particularly pretty made with an ombre fabric so the petals are darker near the neckline and lighter at the tips. You could even use a liquid fabric paint to colour them.
Check out the pattern from the Brisbane Courier, January 16th 1932.
