Welcome to a new pattern making class, in today’s class I’m going to teach you how to make the Peter Pan collar.
This collar is also known as the Baby collar and in the past, it was very common to find it on babies/kid’s clothes.
Today we still find this collar in clothes for girls but my perception is that we find it more in women’s clothes.
Today’s class begins to transform the pattern blocks of the body since before making any collar we have to modify the body so that the neck fits perfectly.
As an example for this class, we are going to make a continuous facing with 5 buttons as an opening system but you can change the design of the bodices as you like.
Then we will go on to make the collar patterns, the Peter Pan collar is usually made of 2 patterns, one for the top part and one for the under part.
To finish the class we will add very quick seam allowances to the transformed bodies.
As in all my classes, I am going to give you the necessary measurements to make the same collar as me but in the front part of the collar, we will do it freehand.
Here we will put into practice our eyes as pattern makers to be able to make the shape similar to the one we will see on the screen.
If you have any questions about today’s class, remember that you can always send me an email through your account, in the support section.
Submit your exercises
As you already know, the best way to learn industrial pattern making is by practising, that’s why for today’s class I’m going to ask you to make the same patterns that I’ve made in today’s class.
You already know that you can send me these exercises in real size or half scale.
Please try to send me photos where the patterns and their annotations are clearly visible so that I can send you better comments.
