Hay guize.

I'm making my first costume and I'm pretty much freeballing it. Its coming alone quite nice. I just not sure how to make Simon's collar

perhaps if you bought some interfacing (white mesh stuff that gives fabric stiffness) and layered it up on the inside of the collar (ha difficult to explain), and leaving the fold without interfacing, so it sits flat against the part with interfacing.....I hope you understand what I mean :) . You can usually buy interfacing at decent fabric stores. You would probably need about 1-2 metres of it.

Here is a pic of what I mean:

you could also search the web for trinity blood patterns. A lot of the characters in trinity blood have collars exactly the same as Simon's :)
