Hot Patterns Collar/Lapel Tutorial, Part 1

Sunday, December 3, 2006
Many of my readers have asked me to explain how the collar and lapel on many HotPatterns styles are sewn. So Let's start with the collar. As you can see in the photo, this collar may be shaped differently than other collars you have sewn before. To make it more clear, I have marked the stitching lines on the collar, so you can see which edges must be sewn before the collar can be applied to the shirt.


After the collar is stitched, turned and pressed, mark the match points with a dot on the lower corners of the collar.
