Style tip: Make a one-of-a-kind collar in vibrant tones for a knockout look, or choose neutral colors to match a range of garments.

This review was originally featured in Threads #171 (February/March 2014).

Simplicity 1727

This set of nine collar designs offers a variety of trim and closure options to instantly jazz up a neckline. Whether you make a basic collar piece or choose to include the collar stand, each of these patterns is quick and easy to sew. The instructions are clear, helpful, and well-illustrated. Our tester went to town with her test samples, decorating them with appliquéd motifs, marbling the fabric, and using novelty prints. Suggested fabrics include lightweight denim, piqué, sateen, lace, eyelet, poplin, brocade, satin, shantung, taffeta, and sequined fabric. The sample collar is in dotted denim from the Threads stash, and is embellished with glueon crystals from Michaels stores.

(Sized Misses’ S-L for necks 12.5-14.5 in.)

Style Tip: Make a one-of-a-kind collar in vibrant tones for a knockout look, or choose neutral colors to match a range of garments.
