Upgrading your wardrobe doesn’t always have to involve stitching a garment from scratch. Instead, you can enhance your outfits with the simple addition of this broderie anglaise collar from Chloe Hailwood. The ideal way to dress up a previously understated top or frock, this fourstep accessory is removable, so you can quickly switch between looks.

  1. Fabric: broderie anglaise, 30cm x 50cm; cotton lining, 25cm x 30cm
  2. Ribbon, 70cm
    1. Download and print the templates from sewmag.co.uk. Using the template on the reverse of broderie anglaise, mark and cut out two collar shapes. Flip the template over and snip out another two collar pieces; this time a mirror image of the first two. Cut two opposite sides from the lining by flipping the template over as before.

    2. Pick up two corresponding collar shapes in the broderie anglaise and one lining piece. Lay the lining piece flat first, right side facing up. Lay the top layer with right side facing up, directly on top of the lining. Roll up a 35cm length of ribbon and lay the raw end of the ribbon at the front pointed tip of the collar, where the collar will fasten; the rolled up part of the ribbon should be sat on top of the broderie anglaise. Pin or tack in place.

    3. Lay the backing piece on top; this time with right side facing down. Pin and tack all round, taking extra care to keep the ribbon end positioned at the pointed tip. Stitch all round, leaving a 5cm gap along a straight edge for turning through. Make a few repeated stitches over the end of the ribbon to make sure it stays in place. Make some small snips along the seam allowance at the inner curve. Turn through to the right side, gently pushing out corners. Neaten and press the opening before closing the gap with an invisible stitch.

    4. Repeat the process with the second set of collar pieces. Lay the two sides of the collar next to each other and make some small stitches between the lower of the top points to connect the two sides. Make some invisible stitches between these two points, then wrap the thread round these stitches in tight loops to give extra strength. Leave the upper points open and unstitched. Neaten the ribbon ends. Secure a thread to an end and wrap the thread repeatedly round, about 5mm from the end. Wrap tightly and secure. Fray the ends up to where the thread is wrapped.
