DIY Lolita Blouse III - Land of Silk and Candy
I'm a fan of this bib-collar blouse from Alice et June. I made a bib-collar from a uniform blouse that can be worn with either a white shirt or a contrasting shirt. Try look for Peter Pan collar shirt from thrift stores or ask your relatives if they have any outgrown uniform blouses. The fit doesn't matter as long as the collar is not too tight or loose on you. I would suggest Short Sleeve Peter Pan Blouse from French Toast since it's extremely cheap and the fabric is easy to care for. All you have to do is cut out the collar and trim the edge with trimmings.

Note: I ended up cutting a lot more than the center photo prior to adding the trims. I don't have any black buttons on hand, so I used black nail polish to paint the buttons black. I also added an extra button in the middle.

How did you know how much to cut? I'm currently about to do the same thing with a tuxedo blouse.

Depends on if you want just a collar or an entire front bib. Put the shirt on first and see what looks good. IMO it would be easier to let it end on the very top of your breasts since white shirt materials are not stretchy and don't cling well to curves.
