However, after a while I got slightly irritated seeing it in my closet because I had seen it on another blogger, and was quite certain it would be a piece that would be too easily recognizable as standard Zara.
I could either donate it or throw it away or had to make it slightly more personal and un-standard it.
Would a applique fit the bill?
Well, I decided not to do that because the fabric is made of a slightly inferior and lighter silk and needed something light to keep the collar looking crisp.
I could leave it without the cuffed sides: only a bit of ironing would get it straight:
Eventually, I Biba-ed it up and gave it a butterfly collar!
