diy: studded collar

After much time needed, I’ve finally got the chance to do another DIY to share with you all. I’m so excited about this one because I just can’t get enough of studs lately and it’s becoming a little out of hand. Then again, maybe that’s not a bad thing. You can’t really go wrong with an easy DIY that says “I’m not afraid to strut in rocker chic attire”…

What you will need:

  • Pyramid studs
  • Jewelry pliers
  • Collared button shirt

I could not find studs at the moment, so I chose this Project Runway faux leather strip with studs on it and took them off to use. Of course the easier route would be to purchase the studs either in the store or online here.

Line up your first stud parallel to the collar neckline stitch. Make sure to place it about 1/8″ away from the roll line/crease so it is able to fold when wearing. Once in place, poke prongs through shirt.

Flip collar over and carefully press prongs down with pliers to secure stud in place.

Place the next stud about 1/4″ away and repeat steps of pushing stud through fabric and securing with pliers.

Place studs from one side to middle of shirt, then start on other end and meet in the middle to make sure placement is even throughout the row. After the first row is done, start another row at the edge of the collar following the same steps. Create a middle row to fill in and…

VIOLA…

I can’t wait to see who has tried this and how it turned out. Please email your photos to comoiblog@gmail.com and comment about your thoughts!!!
