Materials required to draw the boat neck:
- Fusing canvas (buckram)
- French curve (optional)
- Front and back neckline (cut on fabric)
How to make boat neck
- For front boat neckline cutting
- 1 – 2 = 6.5″
- 1 – 3 = 5″ ( FOLDED SIDE)
- For back boat neckline cutting
- 1 – 2 = 6.5″
- 1 – 3 = 4″ ( FOLDED SIDE)
- 1 – A is the neckline width
- A -B = 0.25″ or you can say 1/4″
- B – C = 1″
How to draft neckline
