Welcome to a new industrial pattern making class, in today’s class, I’m going to teach you how to make a cape collar.
The cape collar that I am going to show you today is characterized by the fact that it has a small opening at the front and covers the entire contour of the body at the back.
Today’s class begins by transforming the bodice blocks so that we can have an opening system in the front to use this collar.
As I will explain to you in today’s class, you can change this opening to suit your personal taste. In my case, and since I want to focus on the collar, I have made some buttons stand.
Once we have transformed the bodices block we will proceed to make the collar patterns.
As I have already explained to you in previous classes, it depends on the type of collar that you are going to make, it is important that you overlap the front and the back patterns.
This type of transformation will determine how the collar falls from the body.
Next, we make the patterns for the top collar and the under collar and we will finish today’s class industrializing the bodices.
As always I am going to give you all the necessary measurements to make these patterns but remember that you can change them to personal taste.
In today’s class, we are going to imagine that this design has a sleeve since we have focused on the collar.
Remember that if you have any questions about today’s class, you can always send me an email through your student account, in the support section.
Send your exercises
As you already know, the best way to learn industrial pattern making is by practising, so for today’s class, I’m going to ask you to make the patterns for the cape collar.
You can send me these patterns in real size or half scale.
Please, try to send photos where the patterns and their annotations are clearly and accurately seen so that I can send you better feedback.
