Outfit your blouses, dresses, jackets and coats with custom collars alongside Apparel Arts founder Suzy Furrer. Learn to draft both standard and hidden button plackets before moving on to collars. Design quick and easy camp collars, classic Peter Pan collars for a vintage look, trendy band collars (also known as Mandarin or Nehru collars), and dress-shirt-style collars with bands. Draft shawl collars interfaced with hair canvas for a smooth roll line, custom-shaped partial-roll collars and one-piece patterns for full-roll collars. Finish your coat or jacket designs in professional fashion with glamorous Napoleon collars and chic notched collars. You'll also learn about marking for production-ready patterns. Draft collars and closures like a fashion designer.
Meet your instructor, designer and author Suzy Furrer, learn more about the collars and techniques covered in your class, then dive right into designing traditional and hidden button plackets on your bodice sloper. Your placket measurements will later be incorporated into many of your collar designs.
