Create a Graceful Funnel Collar

Threads magazine - 130 - April/May 2007 Issue
Article Image
The great thing about a funnel neck on a jacket or blouse is that it flatters and fits a wide variety of body types and face shapes. The small stand at the back of the neck gives a slight lift to the back of the garment and balances a short neck without the height of a larger collar. The way in which the funnel collar extends into the smooth V-neck of the front provides a lovely diagonal line, but it is more substantial than a simple cardigan style. And because of this small stand, this style is also quite comfortable. It covers the back of the neck more completely than a cardigan. Fred Bloebaum demonstrates how the ease of construction of a funnel-collared garment makes this style a perfect candidate for those who are exploring jacket construction for the first time.
