Jill and I had wanted to try a large peter pan collar with the Juliette during testing but got too busy so decided to add it as a free piece that you can use instead of the ruffle. I was eager to see how the collar looked with the bias neckline and I love how it turned out - especially with the ties option at the back. Would you like to try the Juliette collar with your Juliette pattern? You can find the file in the sewpony patterns group HERE. Just look in the 'files' section of the group and there you will find the free Dulcie dress and now also the Juliette collar.  

I made this dress from a beautifully soft cotton is called Woodland Clearing, designed by Leisl Gibson (the genius behind Oliver + S patterns) for Robert Kaufmann.  I bought it a Ministry of Fabric a few months ago.  I love the pops of neon pink (which are a little hard to see in these pics)...and of course you know I love mustard.  I made the collar from some medium brown homespun I picked up at Spotlight. 

I wanted the collar to sit beyond the arm scyes, because I love when they do that!  We tried in vain to take some photos of Emily down at an awesome cafe by the water near us but it was too cold and she couldn't stop shivering! Naughty Mummy.  So we opted for some sewing room photos instead. Emily is very hard to photograph as she is constantly pulling funny faces so I end up taking forty photos to achieve five that I can use!
