Sailor collar tutorial

VERY BIG FILE!

This is for my set of Sailor Moon inspired tutorials, the Sailor Collar.

Link to the sailor collar pattern [link]

Since I made the normal Sailor Neptune, I did not put a ribbon on it. I hope my explanation is detailed enough to help you attach a ribbon.

As I've said in the tutorial, if you need any more help, please ask me and I will do my absolute best to help you. :nod:

How much seam allowance when sewing the pieces together?

would this same pattern work to create a rounded sailor collar? such as the one here?: img3.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20…
Solai-Tsukada's avatar
I'd say so. You'd probably have to widen the back of the collar so the roundness wouldn't be too stretched out

How much fabric would you estimate would be needed to make this and what would you recommend i do if i need a white stripe around the perimiter of the top side of the collar? (i am making a yukiko amagi cosplay)
Solai-Tsukada's avatar
half a meter/yard should be good but if you want to be safe, go for 3/4 of a meter/yard. for a stripe, you can either use ribbon (maybe 1.5/2 meters/yards), cotton fabric if you have spare in the color needed or bias tape

What kind of fabric would you suggest for making this?
Thanks for the great tutorial by the way ^__^
Solai-Tsukada's avatar
100% cotton is what i normally use cause its easy to work with and doesnt bunch under the machine. if youre going for the musical versions, a shiny satin would look better
tinyliar's avatar
Okay, thank you!
actually I'm not doing a sailor moon cosplay its for something else
Solai-Tsukada's avatar
youre welcome and good luck with your sewing c:

how much fabric did you use to make the collar?
Solai-Tsukada's avatar
you could probably get away with half a yard by a yard since its double layered. im not sure of the exact measurement cause i just bought a few yards of the same color for the whole costume

The "Ribbon" if that white part on the drawings right?
Solai-Tsukada's avatar
Yep, that would be the white, or yellow on Super Sailor Moon.
Tasteless-Ecstasy's avatar
:D Thanks! Around what with would you recommend it to be?
Solai-Tsukada's avatar
I'd recommend 1/4 inch wide ribbon only because you won't have to iron down the sides before sewing.

what do you recommend for the stripes on the collar, I know neptune does not have a stripe, but the scout Im cosplaying does
Solai-Tsukada's avatar
Ribbon is probably your best best. About a 1/4 inch wide ribbon unless it's a thick stripe, then you can go up to 1/2 inch.
Tasteless-Ecstasy's avatar
How much material did you use?
Solai-Tsukada's avatar
A half yard/meter should be enough for a collar. C:

I had a few yards for all the teal parts so I'm not 100% sure how much I ended up using.
