Faux Cuffs and Collar Tutorial

Hello everyone!

This is a tutorial to make a detached collar and (faux) French cuffs. I intended this to be for Playboy Bunny-style costumes, and that’s a good use for them, but I can see people wanting to make these for fashion purposes or other costumes, as well. 

The collar is functional and buttons at the neck, and the cuffs are functional but use a snap on the inside and decorative buttons sewn to the outside to imitate the look of cufflinks. This makes them easier to deal with during a con day and makes it easier to either make custom “cufflinks” or to use what you have in your sewing stash rather than buying or attempting to make actual cufflinks.

MAN 1924 - SS17 Collection Preview

Established as one of the most charismatic Spanish brands of recent years, MAN 1924 has been continuously presenting a very personal take on relaxed tailoring. The family-run label from Bilbao places a heavy emphasis on high-end materials and natural fibres to materialize its unique interpretation of contemporary elegance - one that embodies several cultural elements of its Spanish heritage.

Whereas we’re faced with relaxed linen saharianas or more polished tailored sports jackets, there an underlying relaxed coolness behind each and every garment on its collections. This very same coolness is blatantly visible on the superb style of Carlos Castillo and Jorge Navares (the male duo behind the brand), which easily transitions from suited attires to carefully curated combinations of chinos, shirts and casual jackets. 

Its SS17 collection explores new unstructured jacket designs, made from luxurious lightweight “tinto in capo” cotton and linen blends (such as the green version on the first picture). Vests are also at the core of the collection, allowing for interesting layering even during Summer, whereas on the more tailored end of the spectrum three-button-two jackets shine in beautiful plaid and herringbone versions.

The writer of this blog would be forever grateful if someone could please tell her what this fabric is called.

Obviously there was only enough of it to make one long-sleeved dusty rose low-pile velvet sweater crop top, which is a complete and utter travesty because it is perfect.
