Back To The Basics: Collars




Collars are one of the hardest things to make, I believe, when it comes to designing and sewing clothing! However, just like everything else, the more practice you put into something, the better you’ll be. It was only recently that I figured out how to make collars. Before that, I had my fine share of awfully constructed collars over the past years. You can view some here!


Here is an in depth tutorial on how to sew a collar. I’ve tried to example it as best as I could and I hope it helps someone out there! Keep in mind, everyone has different ways of sewing and designing. However, this is the way I’ve learned to do it and a way I think is simple enough for others who are just learning how to sew to understand. Enjoy the video!

A few years ago back in 2015, I attended a Summer Live class at FIT in NYC. There, I learned how to drape skirts, shirts, and make collars! Over time, I stopped my practice in draping, but before I starred on PRJr, I decided to pick it back up again.


Here a few pictures from the class. I had an amazing professor: Barbara Seggio, who I will hopefully have as a professor again soon.
