THE DOUBLE COLLAR PATTERN • Immediate Digital Download (Also available in Hard Copy Pattern Form. See shop for listing.)
DESIGN FEATURES: Three different double collar styles with step by step instructions for each style.
No actual pattern pieces are required as upcycling is a process of deconstruction and reconstruction. Basic sewing skills are needed. With the pattern instructions and illustrations you will know exactly what and where to cut, and how to assemble the pieces. The pattern answers questions like:
- What if both the collars I want to use are not the same size?
- What differs between an inside and outside collar mounting?
- How exactly do I attach the collar?
- Two collars layered together are really thick, how can I help my machine handle the thickness?
- My second collar will not stand up, what is needed?
- What do I do with the extra fabric below the collar band on the harvested collar?
Save yourself time and aggravation. We’ve worked out the kinks and made upcycling a double collar simple!

How did Paganoonoo Patterns come about?
Without assistance it is not always easy to come up with an upcycled design you will proudly wear in public. Trust me, I made my share of wadders when I first started upcycling (still do occasionally). And I am committed to the “greening” of fashion. Remaking new clothes out of old is logical and appealing so…
As I experimented, I thought if I, as a trained fashion designer, am having trouble producing good results in a reasonable amount of time I wonder how others are fairing? And what I can do to make a difference? I set to work to develop reproducible designs, document the instruction steps and pair them with numerous illustrations. Paganoonoo Patterns were born.
