Learning to draft collars is one of the best and most useful sewing techniques I have acquired. Here I am going to show how to make a sailor collar for a child's dress, but this can be done on any garment. If you don't want a sailor's collar, draw whatever shape you would like!

Technique Materials

Tracing paper
Pencil & eraser
Gridded ruler
French curve
Fabric for main garment and for collar
grosgrain ribbon
