Welcome to a new pattern making class, in today’s class I’m going to teach you how to make the Sailor Collar.
The Sailor Collar is recognizable by its lapels on the front and its square panel on the back.
Today’s class begins by transforming the bodice block patterns, where you will learn how to transform them so that this collar fits perfectly and is comfortable to wear.
Then we will go on to make the sailor collar patterns, where we will begin to see what a semi-flat collar or a “roll collar” is.
The roll collars are collars that rise a little from our neckline.
The sailor collar is made up of 2 different patterns, the upper collar and the under collar.
Once we have finished the collar patterns, we will go on to make the facings of the front and back to be able to make today’s sample.
As always, I am going to give you all the necessary measurements to make the sample that you can see on the screen, but feel free to change it according to your personal taste or that of your client.
This design is meant to be sleeved as I have not taken the ease out of the armhole or cleaned the armhole with a facing.
Remember that if you have any questions about today’s class, you can send me an email through your account, in the support section.
Submit your exercises
The best way to learn pattern making is by practising, so for today’s class, I’m going to ask you to make the Sailor Collar patterns.
You already know that you can send me these exercises at real size or at half scale.
Please try to send me clear photos of the patterns and their annotations so that I can give you better feedback.
