Tutorial – Drafting One Piece Collar – Crisp and Sharp Corners Part IJune 7, 2017 / byCennetta / Categories : Feeds
This year I'd decided to try a few new things to improve and refine current my practices. There is always room for improvement. So today I'm sharing a technique published in Sandra Betzina's book, "Sewing Tool Box". This technique produces perfect crisp, sharp corners on a shirt collar. The following tutorial gives you step-by-step instructions on how to re-draft the collar pattern so that it is one continuous piece. Part II will illustrate how the actual collar is made.
Step 3 - This picture show the half collar without the seam allowance.
Step 5 - Next, flip the pattern over to extend from the right end where the collar ends. Trace the three remaining sides.
Step 6 - This picture shows the two collar traced on the tissue paper.
Step 7 - Now on the right end, add 5/8" seam allowance to the new pattern.
Step 8 - Cut the new pattern out. It should look like the pattern above.
Step 9 - Note - to show how the "fabric" collar will look, I cut the pattern on the fold.
Step 10 - This step shows how you would fold and sew the fabric collar, which has only one center back seam to create the upper and lower collar. The second seam is along the long edge shown on the lower section of the following picture.
PS - Next post actual collar being constructed.

Hi Readers! I am undoubtedly a dresses girl, but sometimes I want to throw on some slim-fitting jeans. The thing is, when I wear skinny jeans, I don’t want to pair them with a curve-hugging top, and instead want to opt for a longer looser fitting blouse that covers up my mid-section. Yep, I don’t…read more
