Weekly Sewing Inspration: Peter Pan Collars


In Pattern Making 2 class (at Portland Sewing), we just drafted collars, and I just thought that the Peter Pan collar is super cute. I’m going to be drafting up my first pattern this weekend, and sewing it, so I’m looking for design ideas. I’m thinking about making a slim fitting column dress with a peter pan collar and long sleeves.
