Collars, Etc. Pattern Company started in 1995 with a few collar patterns. Over the years her company has grown and expanded, adding more patterns to create a diverse line of classic sewing patterns for children. Owner Trudy Horne has been designing and sewing children’s clothing for over three decades. Her experience with every aspect of children’s wear - designing, pattern drafting, handwork and construction – is seen in each pattern. As an illustrator with a degree in art, she has incorporated detailed drawings into Collars, Etc. patterns, a feature appreciated by novices and seasoned sewers alike.
