Experimenting with Collars

Following on from my steampunk velvet jacket, I am busy experimenting with different collar patterns as I want to replicate the 30s velvet cloak style stand up collar.  I thought it would be fun to add a flamboyant collar to this pretty beaded lace jacket.  I used some acetate taffeta in a pretty soft old gold colour & added a large frill collar - move over Elizabeth I !! - and a large bow tie fastening on the front.  OK, not for everyday wear but I thought this would be fun for fancy dress or theatrical use.
