Welcome to a new pattern making class, in today’s class I’m going to teach you how to make a high neck collar.
There are different types of high neck collars, such as the swan collar or the chimney collar, but the biggest difference between these necks is in how they are drafted.
The collar that you will learn today is characterized by the fact that the collar “is born” from the front pattern and is sewn directly on the back.
Today’s class begins by modifying the back, where we will have to modify the neckline and at that moment I will show you the reason for this transformation.
Then we will go on to make the front pattern where I will teach you how to transform it to draft this collar.
It is very common to do this collar with a wrapped body since it is somewhat more comfortable to wear.
However, it is important to learn how to do it in a simple body so that you understand how it is done, then you can transform it however you want.
As always I am going to give you all the necessary measurements to create the sample that you will see in today’s class, but remember that all these measurements are indicative.
It depends on the final fabric you want to use, it is important that you choose the correct interfacing, for today’s sample I have used Tailor’s Canvas which I have sewn in the facing so that the collar can maintain its structure.
Personally, I have sewn the interlining by machine for today’s class but you could also sew it by hand depending on your client.
Remember that if you have any questions about today’s class you can always send me an email through your user account, in the support section.
