Re: Simplicity Pattern Collection from Threads

Hi Neufiesmom
If you have a pattern that has a collor with a stand attached. You can use the stand just to mak a mandrine collor.

I would add lace to the hem or wear over leggings. You could also add plain fabric to the hem matching the tartan, put some of this trim in pockets or belt to make the addition look as if it was always there.
