CIY: Anthropologie Inspired Pom-Pom Collar Shirt

Time to get out your trim!  

I made this lovely shirt with three different kinds of trims.  It was surprisingly easy to make.  A little pin here, a little pin there, a quick sew and viola!

Are you planning on making this?  If so, send me pictures.  I would love to see what you come up with!

Pom Pom Collar //


– T-shirt (or tank top)

– A yard of large pom-pom trim

– A yard of small pom-pom trim

– A yard of patterned metallic ribbon that is about an inch thick

– Straight pins

– Thread

– Scissors

– Sewing machine (or you could hand sew it)

Pom Pom Collar //{Step 1}: Take your ribbon and lay it so the nice side is facing down.  Then, lay your large pom-pom trim at the bottom of your ribbon so the pom poms are hanging below your ribbon.  Pin the strip your pom poms are attached to directly to your ribbon.

{Step 2}: Now, flip your ribbon over so the good side is facing up.  Take your small pom-pom trim and pin it to the top part of ribbon.

{Step 3}: Trim one of your large poms off from the end of your trim. 

{Step 4}:  Fold the end of your trim under and pin it to the back center of your shirt/tank top. 

{Step 5}:  Pin your trim all the way around your shirt/tank top.  When you get to the back of your shirt/tank top, cut your trim so it goes about an inch over where you started.  Once again, trim off 1 to 2 pom-poms, fold your trim under, and pin it to your shirt/tank top.  Sew all the way around your shirt/tank top. 

I sewed one row towards the top off my ribbon, then did another row through the middle of my ribbon to make sure it was nice and secure.

    Congratulations for your whole blog… you’re very gifted… I like the way you show both your inspiration and your CIY (BTW, I have not yet catched the meaning of the C, even if presume I stand for It and Y for yourself, ?)
    Have a nice day
