Hello Craftsters, I was wondering if any of you could help me find a very detailed tutorial and or pattern for a dress collar/lapel.
A friends mother is making her own dress for Grease-o-rama next year and already has a gorgeous vintage pattern for the dress she wants, however, she is wanting to add a collar like these:

I've done a little looking around with pretty much no results! So any and all help would be awesome!

Thank you Ladies and Gents ;3

I think you could be able to draft it, I didn't find a detail tut on that particular kind of collar, but I think that the principle behind this one for a peter pan collar http://alittledecadence.tumblr.com/post/2480927014 can be applied. You're going just going to used a more rectangular shape and the contour of the strapless dress. Also, the Simplicity pattern #2176 has that kind of collar in the options. I already made that dress and the collar pattern was mostly a rectangle. I guess you can always baste a piece of fabric to the dress once you'll get to add the collar (between the front and the lining) then shape it and use it as a pattern.

I hope l helped you.  Wink

easy, just grab a piece of scrap fabric and pin it over the area you want your collar to cover. trace in pen your neckline it will start/hang from and then draw in your lines of how big and how far/long/wide you want it then cut out and add seam allowance. cut out in real fabric, voila!

Pour yourself a drink, put on some lipstick, and pull yourself together.
