Thanks Nofuelleft, that's a great help Cheesy Do you have any idea what they're called though? lol I'm just curious what the proper name is.

I'm not too fussed if the pattern I've bought is halter/strapped ETC as I'm going to be vastly modifying it anyway. I just love the little collar lapel things and couldn't for the life of me figure out how to do them Sad But with Nofuellefts help and the pattern for a guide I think I might be able to do it now Cheesy


Technically it aint a collar, so you wont find it as such when looking for it .
It's called a biasband.
But i understand 100% that you call it a collar, i would call it a collar also if i had to describe it .
And yes, a Peter pan collar tut would be a good starting point  since you deal with them in the  same way as a biasband .

Yay my patterns turned up! But they do it a different way. It's a straight piece cut on the bias so I'm going to have a go at both Simpliticys' and Nofuelleft's way to see which I prefer Smiley

Just one Q, do you cut on the grain or bias Nofuelleft?

If using a stretch fabric on the bias .
If using a non stretch , well i use fusible interfacing so no point cutting on the bias.

This thread is a riot! We are a bunch of crafty souls with too much in our brains! Grin
I'm anxious to see what she comes up with! I might just have to see if she will make me one!

Still can't find those two silly gals in their vintage attire. Sorry. I have googled all sorts of keywords. I will get time soon to surf the magazines. I know they are in there for some recipies...that is what they are known for. Think Leave it to Beaver. I can send an email to them. They will know what it is called. They wear them all the time, and shop the trendy stores...and now can afford tailors to make them special. They started out making their own, like we do. But hit the big pay dirt.

But it looks like KZB is well on her way to figuring things out.

Stitch, trim, turn, iron, baste in place...try it on...rip it off...cuss...stitch again.  Shocked Well, at least that is how I sometimes do it.

Hey, when do I get done shampooing my hair? It says rinse and repeat. It never says to stop  Cheesy
Sorry. Just your Easter joke today  Roll Eyes And the fact that I don't follow patterns, and make my own. Based on some basics, mind you. Those are called slopers. And I am really into collars. I'm surprised that I haven't absorbed what this one is called. And it is bugging me  Roll Eyes Off to search some more!

Here is a site to play on: https://www.etsy.com/market/dress_with_collar/11
I am not affilated with the company...but found it sweet eye candy for future ideas. And I am studying vintage, and collars today.  Grin
