diy saint laurent leather bow collar

[left picture- luisaviaroma.com]
Saint Laurent came out with these really cute bow collars for Fall. They created them in silk, and in sequin and (my favorite) leather. They're fairly easy to re-create if you have basic sewing skills.

Supplies-
  • Leather (mine came from a thrift store skirt)
  • Satin choker necklace (available at most craft stores) 
  • Craft glue
[Cut the leather into 3 sections. 1st 5 1/2 inches wide and 8 1/2 inches long. 2nd 5 1/2 inches wide and 10 inches long. 3rd 5 1/2 inches wide and 13 inches long]
[Fold the leather over width wise- right sides together. Sew the ends and top closed- leave a small opening in the middle so you can turn it right side out]
[Turn the leather right side out. Repeat these steps with the other 2 pieces of leather]
[Place the layers on top of each other from smallest to largest. Make sure they are centered]
[Cut out a section of leather that measures 2 inches wide and 3 1/2  inches long]

[Fold the ends of the tab over, then fold in half. Sew in place]
[Place the tab in the middle of the layers to create a bow]
[Place the necklace under the tab and either glue or hand sew it down]
