Icon of the 1960's Dog Ear Collar

One of the icon's of the late 60's and early 70's was the exaggerated Dog Ear Collar. This sweet dress pattern has everything a girl could want from the era. It's a mini dress, it has a low scoop neckline, long bell sleeves, princess seams, flirty flare skirt and a choice of 2 collars. The long pointed collar attached to a neck band give the dress a peek-a-boo effect. Of course the huge dog ears are my personal favorite, but if I were making this adorable dress to wear, I would choose the view not shown. I would give it the scoop neck and have the dog ears attached to the neck band for a peek-a-boo dog ear look. But any way you make it, this pattern is a definite WINNER!
