Step 2 Draft the upper collar

Line up front and back shoulder seams as they would be sewn, making sure that the neckline rounds properly. Overlap slightly by an inch at the far shoulder close to your arm to create a nice roll for your collar later on.

Lay tracing paper over your two pattern pieces. Mark center front (CF) and center back (CB). Next, use a French curve to trace around the neckline, starting where the neckline will actually be seamed. Indicate where you want the Peter Pan collar to end at CB.

Determine the depth of your collar and make dash marks with a clear gridded ruler around the neckline. Use French curve to draw in a rounded curve at CF and connect dash marks. Create curve at CB as well.

Draw seam allowance around the bottom of the collar (seam allowance is already included at the neckline). Use French curve to connect the dash marks.
