This collar is known as the band collar. It stands up on the neck, closes with a button and buttonhole and is most often used on shirts and blouses. We’ll demonstrate how to draft the band collar and then how to complete your band collar pattern. Once you’ve learned how to draft this collar try our other collar lessons, the Peter Pan, the Convertible and the Sailor collar.
The slopers needed for this lesson can be found and drafted in our Pattern making lesson: Drafting a Shoulder Dart Bodice Sloper from Measurements, or you can download and print our free Women’s Bodice Slopers included in our lesson: Pivoting a Bodice Shoulder Dart to a Side Bust Dart. You will use this bodice sloper to draft a torso sloper in our Pattern making lesson: Convert Bodice Sloper to Fitted Torso Sloper.

MODULE 1 • Band Collar Draft
|1||For this lesson, you will prepare 1 piece of white unlined pattern measuring 16” (40.6cm) square.|

|3||Record these measurements on your white pattern paper on the upper left-hand corner of the paper block. We will record 3” (7.6cm) for our back neck and 4 ¼” (10.8cm) for our front neck measurement.|
