Hello there. I want to make a peter pan collar but can’t find a nice pattern. How can I draw it myself?
Hi! Making a Peter Pan collar is very easy and fun. You really don’t need a pattern for that. ‘Cause you can draw it easily!
All you need to do is:
1- measure around your neck
2 - add 1.5 inches to that
3- draw it circularly on a pattern paper
4- decide on the width of your collar (for ex. 3 inches) and draw it around your initial circle in a parallel way until you come to the collar ends. Towards the end of the collars, combine the two lines. The photo below would help you visualize it much better:
- You can do all the measuring and pattern making yourself;
- or you can use an existing blouse / dress pattern;
- or you can draw a pattern by using one of your favorite outfits like this (click on the photo if you’d like to see another tutorial from another talented blogger):
My peter pan tutorial in the “Watch and Learn Grasshopper” section might help you a lot: Make Your Own Peter Pan Collar.
When you get the grasp of collar making, you can do tons of different versions of it! Let me give you some examples for inspiration:
