I am sure you can find pattern with collar like that, check your local Fabric store.

Aah yes....the evil ORB collar. I remember that well. I looked through most catalogs at the fabric store and couldn't find anything that came very close to it. I used a suit-jacket kind of pattern for cagalli and modified it. Basically what I did was add an extension onto the pattern of the already existing collar. Unfortunately I can't explain much more than that...and it even didn't come out precisely the way I wanted to (if I had my choice I'd redo it). Anyway, if you're interested you can look in my gallery for pictures of my Cagalli jacket.

If you're using a pattern as a base and altering it, just experiment. Make a couple sketches and then use the collar piece of the pattern and some scrap paper and play around with triangular shapes until you get something close. The collar piece for mine ended up shaped something like this:

It's not a very good image, so don't take it to scale or anything. It's just to give you an idea about the shape of the collar piece. But again, this probably isn't the best method. however I hope it gave you a few ideas ^^
