trim + collar

Deciding on collar and trimming. In this case collar is problematic to my eye but wearing it may bring inspiration.

The store bought black trims I tried seemed too stark and there wasn't enough of the orange shot silk on the bodice so I started playing with fabric to see what interesting self-fabric trim might emerge.

Failed attempts end up on hats or in the trash. In this case I made a bunch of fringe by pulling threads out of the fabric and then looking in the wastebasket at all the threads made me want to make tassels from the debris.
