Your neckline or collar is often the focal point of your garment. It draws the eye upward, framing your face - don't you want it to be perfect?
Whether you like a simple scooped neckline or a shawl collared blouse, the neck treatment you use in your clothing reflects your style.
This tutorial offers instructions for cowl necks, sweetheart necklines, mandarin collars, sailor collars, shawl collars, notched collars, convertible collars - even a halter top!
Each type of collar also has a wide variety of options (scalloped edges, collar points, and lots more).
A convertible collar can be used for a blouse or a lightweight coat or jacket, like the one at left.
Worn open, it creates a lapel. When closed, it looks like a shirt collar.
A straight, stand collar - like a Mandarin - is a very simple neck treatment.
But make it taller and tighter, and it's a fashion statement.
A cowl is a lovely, draped neckline - but you don't need a body form. This can be created using the "slash and spread" method with your basic bodice block.
All of these, and more, are included in A Beginner's Guide to Necklines and Collars
