Where can I find good instructions for drafting a camp collar for a mens shirt?

I've got three variants, but I can't vouch for any of them...

Not really a camp collar though, is it? And it doesn't help that all the Instagram links are now dead...

Why a draft?  You could do a rub-off or a tear down and copy much quicker.  If it's for personal drafting from scratch is reinventing the wheel but that's my personal opinion.  Camp shirts are fairly loose fitting and once you have a basic block you can tinker to your hearts content.  Try David P. Coffin's latest shirt book for some examples.  He has on-line links.  You could also buy a pattern.  Older vintage patterns are usually better than what's out there right now.  Check out Peter Lappin's blog "Male Pattern Boldness".  Peter did a camp shirt class for Craftsy; decent class, not A-1, but decent.  He's self taught and produces very nice garments.

Perhaps the person doesn't have a shirt with a convertible collar on hand to trace.

Personally, I like to have drafting options to either use or refer back to, if I am copying something.
