Do you want the truth about the inspiration for this collar? It was an Orkney Wine Company bottle label! The elongated triangle wrapped around the bottle made me think, “That would be a good shape for a collar or shawl.” Dots are everywhere this season, so eyelets seemed appropriate, and they have the added advantage of acting as button holes, so you can make the collar as tight or loose as you like. Winter pastels are also popular, especially pinks, and this colorway was love at first sight. The hat completes the set.
