    Default What is the name of this collar?

    I received this top as a gift. This collar totally works for me, but I don't know how to describe it. I'll be looking for more like this. Does it have a certain name? (To clarify, this isn't a two-piece, as someone asked me.)

    Sorry the pic isn't so great. Hopefully it gives the basic idea. Forgive the wrinkly mess the shirt is here.

    It's a great shirt. The top part looks like a shrug, but I don't know the name for the collar cut.

    When I saw the thread title, this is what came to mind . Wait till 2:04 when she asks Ringo about his collar.

    I already know that will happen here lol.

    It winds up looking very . . . Victorian on me. Anything that has that "period piece" feel to it works well for me for some reason.

    Note: I will also wear a decent bra with this top, unlike in the pic lol.

    I have a shirt similar to yours, it's black though. I think on the tag is said 'shrug top'.

    I LOVE that neckline! Unforunately i don't know what it's called.

    A shawl collar maybe?

    This website says it's a Queen Anne?

    DevilDoll, thanks. When I'm shopping, I'll mention that term and see if it rings bells.

    t13nif, thanks for more terms and that site - it's a good resource.

    It's a shrug/shawl collar. I love those so much but seem to have a hard time with them since I have small/rounded shoulders. They also look dressier to me than just a plain top.

    i've always seen that collar referred to as an elizabethan collar in dressmaking (not to be confused with the elizabethan collar for dogs ). the elizabethen collar is very similar to a queen anne neckline, but the queen anne is a sweetheart neckline, whereas the elizabethan is square across the neckline. that has been my observation, anyway.

    eta: it's not a portrait neckline; a portrait neckline isn't higher in the back, like the elizabethen.
