I had no idea there were such things as templates! I'm going to stalk this post because I want to make a shirt cake this weekend too! I have learned so much from this website~

oh and I found this by googling but it's not actually a template, just instructions

complete instructions on drafting your own collar template.

nota bene: CB fold = center back fold -- you draw this on a peice of paper folded in half. You'd want to use at least 14" long paper (for a barely 13" around neck measurement.

-------------------------------

noose (tie) = two pieces

a trapezoid for the knot (small straight end down)

then a long piece for the main part -- this part can be straight (oh so 70s or if very narrow in black oh so European esp. Italian ) or tapered (narrow end at top)

amount of taper top to bottom is a fashion statement (wider = more retro)

end can be straight across (retro) or pointed)

a real tie can easily serve as the pattern.
