Nancy K wrote about the jacket she’s making for her daughter and referred to a Threads article she uses from issue no. 68 “the foolproof notched collar” for constructing this.
Notched collars are not the easiest to make, and though my last results with the technique from Claire Shaeffer were good, I was tempted to try this technique. This is my sample. I did interface (with some left over interfacing of not too high quality) but did not make a roll line. That I’ve done before and will do on a real jacket.
The pattern is from Burda, a collar with that goes very deep, almost to the waist, just one of the patterns with this collar that was in the issue that on my desk.
The result. I love it.
And this is the back, like Burda often does a separate piece for the stand of the collar, which makes it roll beautifully.
And perhaps I will be sewing for real soon: these are Vogue patterns I received from Nancy in exchange for two issues of Knip Mode. Thanks Nancy.
I will be making a few of them soon (I hope).
