Collar / Chest Ornament
Piece Unique

This piece of garment is wearable in different ways , as shown in the pictures.
Each model is unique .
The fabric used is an up-cycled silk and vintage rhinestone buttons from the 50/60s.

Several steps are necessary to have this result , it is not enough to cut the silk and to sew it .
The first step is to hand wash the silk .
After this first cleaning , I cut it and wash it a second time , to fray the edges .
Soaking in the softener , to make the silk soft .
Finally , when this long stripe of silk ( several meters ) is dry , I can start the sewing step .

The fabric is wrinkled by hand , then pinned on the long ribbon and machine stitched .

I wash it one more time , only with softener .
I wring it between my hands , in ball , then I hang on for the drying , with its crumpled effect . 
After all these steps , time to sew the jewels buttons .

As I said , you can wear this ornament in different ways.
To show you all the possibilities , I use the pictures from several models :
