The Peter Pan Collar is totally trendy right now and definitely an eye-catcher. This round collar shape came up in the 1920s and experienced a renaissance in the 1960s.

Peter Pan Collar

Bubikragen Schnitt

This Peter Pan collar has virtually no collar stand and is therefore very flat. The construction is drafted directly on the combined front and back pattern with little overlap at the shoulder. This gives the necessary width for the collar to lie flat on the shoulder.

Collar Construction:

Bubikragen Schnitt

Close the bust dart on the front pattern. Place the back pattern on the front shoulder with 1 – 1.5 cm overlap at the armhole. The slight overlap at the shoulder gives this collar a very flat shape but, at the same time, prevents a too wide and wavy collar edge. Lower the neckline 1 cm at the shoulder and at the centre back. Lower the neckline 2 cm at the centre front and draw the new neckline perpendicular to the centre back. Plot the Peter Pan collar 6 cm wide according to the illustration. Draw the front collar 0.7 cm lower than the neckline for a better fall. Trace a copy of the collar.

High Peter Pan Collar

Hoher Bubikragen Schnitt

The grown-on stand gives this Peter Pan Collar a higher shape. The construction is drafted directly on the combined front and back pattern. Front part and back pattern overlap so far at the shoulder that the shortened outside edge provides the collar with the necessary stand.
