Draft a Sailor Collar

June 5, 2012 by Britex Fabrics 0 comments

We adore sailors and their attire….the cock-eyed caps, the middy blouse, the rakish 13-button trousers! When Charlotte from Tuppence Ha'penny gets the wind in her sail (we couldn’t resist), she goes all out. First she researched nautical fashion and gave us her sailor-y findings, and then she wrote up a tutorial for drafting a sailor collar for your garment. Anchors aweigh, mate!
