Create a Graceful Funnel Collar

Threads magazine - 130 - April/May 2007

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.

    Not happy right now! Thank heavens I ordered only a month's subscription b/c this article APPEARED to give directions to making a graceful funnel collar but all it does is give an overview! When I tried to acmes Threads#130, it refused to load, just got stuck & finally timed out. Now I have to waste my time seeing where I might access how to make it. Really tiresome.

      Did you click on the "View PDF" button at the bottom of the intro, right below "From Threads #130"? That should open the article in pdf format, so you can download and print if you like.
      If you have a trial membership, you can also search the Online Archive (in this case, it's helpful to search by the author's name), and you'll get the article that way. If these functions are not working for you, I encourage you to contact our Customer Support department for help.
