Shape For This Collar?

How should I go about making the shape/pattern for this collar?
I've tried cutting out a single, half circle shaped piece, but there ends up not being enough fabric for going around my shoulder/collarbone area.
Is it only possible with two pieces? I'd prefer being able to do it with one if possible.

Try looking for patterns/tutorials for mandarin collars as a starting point. You may be able to modify a mandarin collar to give it that little bit of flare around the neck.

I also do my collar mock-ups in paper. You can then slit and flare and tape it until you're happy with the shape before tracing it onto fabric and trying it that way.
