50+ types of COLLARS – choose the best one for you.

Collars started out as something of a dilemma to me as for many others when I started to sew. But they are such an unavoidable design feature that there is a need to know the types of collars  and the way to sew them if you are seriously into sewing.

Basically there are just 3 types of collars – the stand collar, flat collar and the roll collar. The names are self explanatory enough

Stand collar fits around the neck. It is basically a band which stands upright on the neck.
Roll collar  is a stand collar which is then folded or rolled over
Flat collar is found flat on the shoulders.

All the others are variations of these basic styles.
