Comete, the sewing pattern with multiple possibilities
For our fall/winter collection we presented our lovely Comète pattern. This pattern available in dress or blouse version, with different options of sleeves and collars, was a great success and it is still our favorite pattern in the showroom.
Today we propose you a hack of the collar, the strong element of this piece with nice details.
You will need...
The frilly collar
- Front x2
- Back x1 to the fold
- Sleeve x2
- Collar x2 to the fold
You will not need the “template” piece to draw the scallops.
The steps :
Start by ironing the collar as shown in the tutorial.
Cut a strip of fabric 145cm long and 4cm wide.
Fold the strip in half lengthwise, and mark the fold with an iron. At 0.5cm and 1.5cm from the edge, sew 2 gathering threads.
Gently pull the gathering threads (the ones from the can) until the strip is equal to the length of your collar.
Carefully distribute the gathers and pin the gathered strip to the underside of the collar. Stitch 7mm from the edge to hold everything in place.
