Peter Pan & Roll Collars - Three Variations

Peter Pan & Roll Collars

Peter Pan & Roll Collars

This lesson falls into the “roll” collar category, meaning that the collar rolls over itself, creating a “stand” or “roll” at the neck. We will teach you how to draft the Peter Pan collar in three variations, each sitting lower at the neck and flatter on the body. Once you’ve drafted the collars you will learn how to transfer them into a pattern and then be able to apply this knowledge so that you can create other innovative collar point variations for your designs.

One you’ve learned how to draft a roll collar try your hand at the Mandarin, the Convertible and the Sailor collar.

The bodice sloper needed for this lesson can be found and drafted in our Patttern making lesson: Drafting a Side Bust Dart Bodice Sloper from Measurements and then transferred into oaktag in our lesson Transfer Side Bust Bodice Drape to Paper-Oaktag. Or you can use the draped bodice from our lesson: Side Bust Dart with Back Neck Dart and pivot the back neck dart to a shoulder dart in our Pattern making lesson: Pivoting a Back-Shoulder Dart to a Back-Neckline Dart.

MODULE 1 • Peter Pan 1” (2.5cm) Roll Collar Draft

Step Description
1A This lesson will teach you how to draft three variations of a roll collar. The Peter Pan collar falls into the “roll collar” category, meaning that the collar rolls over creating a “stand” or “roll” at the neck. We will draft the Peter Pan collar with a 1” (2.5cm) stand first and then demonstrate ½” (1.3cm) roll and finally a 1/8” (6mm) roll. Notice each collar’s position at the neck and how it rests on the body.
We will begin by using our front and back torso slopers, however you could also use your bodice sloper. For this lesson, only use a front sloper with a side seam dart and not a shoulder dart. For the back, only use a sloper with a shoulder dart.
2 To complete a draft and pattern for each of the Peter Pan collars in this lesson, you will prepare three pieces of white unlined pattern measuring 18” (45.7cm) square.
