forgive me if this is the wrong section to post this.

I have Simplicity 7051 vintage pattern sorry don't know how to insert the picture or link. I have no collar pattern piece - Size 40, Bust 42.

Is it easy to draft this piece myself, do I follow the shape of the neckline (from back zip to v neck?) or should I go searching for a copy of the collar online?

any help would be gratefully appreciated.

You might try posting a Wanted ad in the Classifieds.

I've looked online for the pattern and suppose it to be a 1967 dress with a sheath shape, and different sleeve lengths, the collar sitting on a Vee neckline. If this is the one and you don't find the pattern piece you want here is how I would draft it.
Take the front and the back bodice pieces minus seam allowances. Put the neck points together and overlap the shoulders so that there is about a two inch overlap at the shoulder point end, but the neck points stay together. This has the effect of shortening the outer edge of the collar when its drafted, so the more you overlap the shoulder end, the greater the roll of the collar. Eyeballing this, it doesn't look to have much of a roll.
trace the neckline, measure out the width you want the collar and draw the outer edge as you want it to appear on the garment (finishing in a point at the front in this case) Trace this lot off and add seam allowances. Make a test piece out of some scrap fabric.
If you want more roll, for example in the back, you do some more overlaps of the outer edge, dart shaped, where you want more roll.
Typically this is in the back collar rather than the front.
The test piece allows you to check if you like the width and shape too.

I can't find a picture online but someone else may be able too. You will find you have a bit of a blip in your curves where the neck points meet and anywhere where you have darted out to get extra roll. You just smooth these out into a nice curve.

to GLButterfly and Petro many thanks for your replies.

Petro yes that is the dress. I am in the middle of a it and will definitely try your method. I am slowing doing the darts and matching a pattern so it might take me a little time to give you feedback about my progress with the collar. thanks again.

Just FYI, since I think you have already gotten your answer.

Here is the pattern -


And, it's not exactly the same thing, but you can get some ideas from this tutorial. Just leave out the scallops. Actually any of the Peter Pan collar tutorials might work (House of Pinheiro has a good one), but the one I link to starts with a V neckline. It's basically the instructions given earlier in this thread.
