More collar detail.....

Nearly all styles of collars are drafted on rectangles and it is what we do with these rectangles that decides the final collar shape.  The two-piece collar (photo left) is more complex than most and includes all the understanding you need to draft most shirt collars.  It is in fact a combination of the stand collar and the one piece shirt collar.

The diagram (below right) is probably one of the best illustrations I have ever found that describes all the different collar types.  This scan is an extract (p.78) from the Natalie Bray book 'Dress Pattern Designing'.  High on my list of favourites.

Become a member of this blog and you will be sent a two page pdf of the detailed instructions for two-piece collar drafting at the end of February.
Existing blog members included of course.  

Enjoy :)
