Behind the Trend… The sailor Collar

The sailor collar is made of two thicknesses of a heavy fabric. This fabric would be sewn together and then cut into a square which falls down the back and narrows to a point in the front, where a bow is tied. It was a popular style for women in the 1920’s and 1930’s. Often referred to as a sailor suit.
