A new collar.

Made a new, smaller collar for the block shirt, the pattern is a vintage Simplicity from 1979, so it originally had a high collar with long peaks.
I shortened it by 1cm and made it less ‘peaky’ years ago but have gone further this time and taken another 1cm off. It makes a nice little collar.

This is the progression from the original.

The collar stand was shortened from the original to the middle size but not for the latest.

It makes a neat little collar that will work well with bowties.

It’s a bit risky to travel far these days and the major fabric shop is about 20ks away, so I’m just using whatever I have, which isn’t much. There is enough gingham for a shirt but it’s Polyester, not a favourite fabric.

Merry Christmas,
Stay safe,
