DIY: Studded Collar and Cuffs

Inspiration
Whilst browsing Tumblr I came across this picture and remembered that I had a shirt in my wardrobe which was getting a bit boring... I bought some studs from eBay and here's what I did!
'Pyramid Studs': eBay, and a plain sheer shirt.
Push the two 'prongs' of the stud through the beginning of the collar, leaving nice even spaces.
Push them down to secure the studs on the over side.
Continue around the collar following the hem.
Repeat on the other half of the collar.
I've chosen to do the cuffs similar to the collar - start just next to the button hole...
And continue all the way around!
A very simple way of adding interest to a plain item. I didn't have any trouble pushing the studs through either, which I know can happen with denim etc :)
