An eye catching neckline can transform the look of an otherwise simple garment with just a few added steps. Whether you are sewing coats, jackets, or everyday tops, a stylish collar adorning the neckline of a garment adds a sophisticated finish. For a softer feel, flatter the bustline with a fluid, feminine cowl neck. In this webinar, you’ll learn how to draft a variety of collar styles, as well as drafting cowl necklines of varying depths. You’ll even learn how to modify the new BurdaStyle Dress sloper to make your own basic jacket foundation. This web seminar comes just in time for fall, the perfect season for showing off your chic new jackets and tops!
