Free Collars for the Fairfield Shirt
This free download includes instructions and pattern pieces for two collar variations to add to the Fairfield Button-up Shirt pattern.
Create a versatile wardrobe of shirts using one base pattern, the narrow collar style that comes included and the following collar styles within this add-on:
1. Band Collar - This is an old fashioned style that stems from when it was common to wear detachable collars (and sometimes simply leave the collar off). In the last couple of years the band collar (or Mao collar, or Grandad collar) has had a resurgance in popularity. It is essentially a collar stand with no collar attached. It is simple to construct and no additional pattern pieces are necessary. Instructions are included within the download to explain how to use your collar stand pattern pieces to make this style.
2. Wide Spread Collar with Stays - This collar style is a classic style that most men have in their wardrobes. It is flattering with wider ties and does a great job adding the illusion of width to narrow faces. The download includes the pattern pieces and instructions for a wide spread collar complete with collar stays. You can skip the collar stays if you are going for a less formal look!
The Collar Add-on package is available as an instant printable PDF download (sent to your e-mail).
