Does anyone have any idea how to construct a collar like the on on this dress? It is so unique and I have found the exact fabric.

Yes, but that is only since it does not look very unique to me, just since I have seen lots of them,and even going down way further and much deeper into the bodice, in lots of older 1910's to 1920's kind of sewing patterns. So it's nothing real new, and was a popular collar style back then, often set into some 1910-20's waist as in top pattern or even a top of a dress, just that you don't see many current sewing patterns with that kind of neck and collar on it anymore at all. There probably is more a 1910's-1920's kind of name for it, and if you want to look in some old fashion magazines or old pattern magazines, I'm sure more the common name for it, would be in those, (possibly even getting into a more revere collar by name) but I can't remember it as to actual name, right now.

To draft it out for yourself though, you can't do that all by it's self and alone, as it has to be attached and fit onto, the rest of your dress pattern and fit. So you would take the rest of the shape of the dress bodice and use that, to draw out your new collar shape and make it. My guess is on that one, it's not really just one piece but actually two matching pieces even with a seam up the center back. Like that, it probably would fold better, and mold it's self around your neck better.

But since it's not a real poplular style right now, if you want to see what the pattern shapes would look for something like that, go get a bunch of real or reprinted 1910-20's pattern catalogs or dressmaking books where they would have that shown, if you want to do that, and that would work fine. Realize that does not help much, but at least I'm sending you in the right direction to see stuff like that.

I think it's the neckline, not so much the collar that is more unusual. The collar is just a flat collar - not very different from the one on the Colette Hawthorn dress, or a squared off peter pan collar. And the fabric gives a big clue - straight at the outside edge, slightly angled/curved at the neck-side.

It reminds me of a sailor type middy blouse, but there's a reverse V-neck and the collar has a different shape.

Thanks. I am going to start looking at some patterns from that era.
