Grow or improve self-esteem to say tricky, Simply is how to grow or improve confidence was simple really. The trouble is get used to this that does not take a minute. Here I will share a powerful way to develop self-confidence, which is just enough with the usual confidence tips I apply to my life. And based on the Science of Psychology.
Sense of self-confidence
Before we discuss more about how to foster self-confidence would be much better if we first understand what it is that sense of self confidence ..

Believe in yourself (self-confident) or we usually brief with PD (PeDe) is the mental condition of a person who gives trust, or a strong belief in itself that a person can commit an act of courage, such as a man (gentleman) who want to shoot (express love) to the female idol of his heart, Appearing on stage, and so on.
Benefits confidence
Self-confidence is also a very important factor for success or financial success story (read = wealth), For those who have a high confidence can we interpret as A Courageous in all fields, pull the trigger, brave out big capital, bold an opinion in public, and other daring acts.

Basically, if our lives are to be successful or successful in many fields, before we have to increase confidence first. Because in any field is important to have a sense of daring. So, confidence is a must for all of us possess. Because we all know the benefits of what will happen if we have the courage.
The cause of the lack of confidence
In order to more easily master the confidence, first we have to know what causes a person does not have self-confidence???.

If we are doing a little research or are watching someone, the real cause of a person's lack of trust to themselves is because "They Lack Focus On Themselves".

I often see people who have a pretty or handsome face but they could not express his heart to someone who he loved, And that person has the advantage that not everyone has, Why???? ...

The answer is,

Because they are more focused on the lack of her own. When our mind is more focused on a single one of us lack, it is not just one, but all the advantages we have will also be covered with a single deficiency.
How to foster self-confidence
I have a friend that could be considered handsome, wealthy parents, have a car and a motorcycle, a nice house, but unfortunately he had a lisp (can not say "R").

He often confide in me about the same issues that are not confident to express his love for the woman he loves, he says he does not believe himself just because he slurred, he was embarrassed or afraid to be laughed at when he was chatting with her idol she was, he asked me , how to keep her lisp again?? .. and how to foster that confidence?

When I replied with just one confidence tips that I normally apply to myself, that is;

to increase the confidence that it is not eliminated but cadelnya Focus on what you have, "Focus on your strong suit" instead of "Focus on your shortcomings."

The confidence tips is how to foster self-confidence is very simple and powerful to me, a lot of people say to increase confidence when it PDKT his face, create a comfortable sitting position, and blah blah blah .. I think it's too complicated.

By the way, to improve self-confidence, the key is actually only one that is "Focus", Focus on the excess. People who are not confident they are in fact the "Focus" as well, but the focus is more on the shortcomings.

The more we focus on the advantages we have, the shortage we have will start to disappear, the more often we focus on the advantages we have in the form of action, that moment we they really believe that we ourselves do not have any shortage of an inch, and the often we do it right, then all the usual negative aura surrounding us will begin to disappear. And while it also positively radiant aura will begin to emerge glowing from within. Jets of this positive aura that would make everyone fall in love and feel at home with our being. Due to the positive aura can change our face that had looked ugly to look handsome. And it just started from Focus on the advantages, Remember! Focus on the strengths rather than focus on the shortcomings, because everything that a lot of it starts at one, in a small start.

Flannel Suits: the gentleman's choice

Tuesday, January 29, 2013
Flannel for suits is a much-maligned, or perhaps just much-ignored, cloth. The film The Man in the Gray Flannel Suit was, according to Wikipedia, intended to draw attention to the 'stodginess and sameness' of the business community. But does that still apply? These days, stodginess or sameness in business suiting is more likely to be a gray or blue plain-woven worsted wool suit made of fairly lightweight cloth suitable for all-year-round wear in temperature-controlled offices. Flannel has become unfashionable, but at least it's not boring anymore.

My only flannel suit is a suitably dull, gray, double-breasted example from Hackett, and I love it.

I have come to realise that I love soft fabrics. I can't tell you why, there's certainly nothing inherently wrong with smooth-woven cloths, I just happen to go weak at the knees for fabrics with a bit of nap. It absorbs light, and usually adds weight so the suit hangs better, creating an attractive and shine-free sillhouette. Flannel, which is often deliberately brushed to raise a good nap, is a perfect example of this. These days it is often too warm for business-wear but, in less well-heated offices or if you spent a lot of time outdoors, it can be a good bet.

And where can you get one? Well, Hackett of course still do a lot of this sort of thing, and have the sort of properly dense flannel that I like. They are a little pricey though, so for a cheaper option you can always try Charles Tyrwhitt - they do a decent looking double-breasted gray flannel suit, although it's a little on the smooth side for my taste.

Definitely give flannel a try though. It'll make you feel warm inside.

Tight clothes and transparent poorer extremely dangerous in the medical journal in Britain, which in wearing tight clothes in a long time can cause cancer Milanoma. According to scientific research tight clothing worn by women in the blazing sun in a long time, after several years led to malignant cancer milanoma at an early age. and nylon socks they wear is not at all helpful in keeping their feet from the cancer is.
Dangers Of Women Wearing Tight Clothes health
Melanoma Cancer is a very dangerous skin cancer, and the cancer is usually started with a black mark on the skin, or moles. Mole is an abnormal collection of pigment cells (melanocytes) that appear on the skin

And the disease is sometimes the entire body with different levels.

The fetus was not immune from attack milanoma ini.Orang suffering from cancer this cancer will not live long, because they have not found the right drug at the right can cure this cancer.

Tight clothing can cause infertility in women. In very cold weather, tight clothing does not function to maintain body temperature from cold attacks. Temperatures that are too cold can obviously dangerous condition of the uterus (Al-Istanbuli, 2006).

Interfering intestinal mobility
According to Dr. Octaviano Bessa, an internist from Stamford, Connecticut said that the use of pants that are too tight can interfere with the motility of the bowel. This makes a person feel uncomfortable or pain in the abdomen after two or three hours after eating. But sometimes people do not realize that the condition is caused by the use of tight pants.

Trigger clotting of blood vessels
The use of tight clothing will also interfere with the movement of the body that can lead to blood clots in the blood vessels, making blood flow is interrupted, causing varicose veins and causes the kinds of disturbances in tight clothes in a long time is to make a bad body shape and damaged spine.

Interfere with female fertility and mildew around the organ disorders
Results of research conducted in the John Bull (UK), suggests that endometriosis (a disorder that often lead to fertility problems in women) allegedly due to the habit because someone is always wearing tight clothing over the years. Using tight clothing will trigger endometrial cells (cervical mucous) to escape from the cavity of the uterus and settles in the ovaries, so that health becomes impaired.

Tights made especially jeans are a fashion favorite in the dress, but what my friend knows that jeans is not easy to absorb sweat? nah pile of sweat that are around the area often cause problems, such as the onset of fungus, vaginal discharge, itching or very annoying.

If this is allowed to continue, it will cause mildew around the female sex organs. If it is causing fungus, it is certain that a woman will experience a variety of disorders.

Keep in mind that the fungus was very like the atmosphere humid. he will flourish. Well if using automatic tights jeans lipatanya area will be moist, especially if worn all day that's one of the whitish appearance

Worsen the quality of sperm and cause infertility
Based on the research that the use of tight clothing that causes a decrease in sperm quality sperm count of 60 million per milliliter usually has now dropped dramatically to the figure of 20 million per milliliter. After extensive research it turns out the problem is still happening in the scrotum layer that protects the penis. Abnormal temperature in the scrotum because often pressured by tight jeans could have a negative impact on the quality of sperm due to a pile of sweat can not get out around the penis would have caused mold that will increase the temperature of the testes in sperm production.

More or less the same as women, the use of tight pants can lead to 'lack of air', especially the vital organs. Generally temperatures are conducive to vital organs normal to 36.5 degrees Celsius, but when wearing tight pants, udarapun temperature rose to 37 degrees Celsius. Heat conditions is very dangerous for sperm. A study to prove it by taking a sample of men who like to wear tight pants. The number of sperm produced is usually 60 million permilimiter, using tights sperm counts dropped dramatically-third, ie 20 million permililiter.

Why does this happen? Apparently the problem lies in the scrotum. Abnormal temperature in the scrotum because of tight jeans can be bad for sperm quality loh buddy why? because the pile of sweat can not get out around the vital organs. This will cause mildew which will increase the temperature of the testes in sperm production, and if passed will become itchy and it will spread to the testicles.

The ends were finally located on your fertility, although genetically thou fertile offspring, but with tight jeans usage habits could reduce the quality of fertility!

It may sound extreme but this is often experienced by some women. Although corsets are no longer popular, it's kind of clothing can reduce the wearer's lungs develop and this will result in heavy breathing. Also, it will reduce the oxygen that enters the body. Categories include clothing such as wedding underwear, bustier, and spandex

Raising gastric acid
Too tight will also cause a rise in stomach acid because the pressure is too big in the stomach. This can increase the pressure in the abdominal area that will cause stomach acid up into the esophagus.

Seeing the impact on health then think wisely if you intend to buy clothes a size smaller than the size of your body. Do not take the risk to look sexy and trendy, but it can actually cause bad effects for yourself

Tingling was caused disruption of the peripheral nerves, the nerves outside the brain tissue in the whole body. Generally the stress, infection, and metabolic disorders.

Threats Mushrooms
According to dr. Kusmarinah Bramono Sp.KK, a specialist in skin and venereal RSCM, basically all kinds of tight clothing potentially three types of skin disorders both limited hip and above the hips.

It was due to a moisture problem that allowed the fungus to breed fertile. In recent years, patients who went to the victim mushrooms Dermatology Clinic RSCM increased compared to previous years. Throughout 2002, approximately 35% of patients suffered a proven fungus. Their ages range from 15-45 years. Although not all of them related to the habits of dress, but the trend of rising yeast as a source of skin diseases to be wary.

Ideally, in a tropical country like Indonesia, or too thick tight clothing should be avoided. The skin becomes short of space to "breathe", while the fluid out of the body pretty much. As a result, the skin becomes moist. If not balanced right clothes, the fungus will be easier to breed. Type of fungus that is commonly found fungus tinea versicolor (white spots, brown, or reddish), fungi, ringworm with itchy spots stand out, as well as candida fungus, wet and itchy.

If the owner of the body consciously distanced themselves from tight clothing, the black color may be reduced or lost altogether. However, Kusmarinah warned, the process of removing the black stain that can not be done as fast as turning the palm of the hand.

Another type of skin disease commonly descend tights wearer is urticaria or chilblains. The shape is similar to bump-bump caterpillar bites. The severity ranging bump for seed corn until puffy lips.

Urticaria can occur anywhere on the body. Based on observations Kusmarinah, many patients do not realize, urticaria can also be caused by stress and tight clothes.

India: Old-school tailor-made

Sunday, January 27, 2013
I am in India for a couple of weeks.

To say that India is, in some areas, 'very foreign' is so trite as to be hardly worth repeating. What I find more interesting is the idea that in some respects it's actually not so much a different country as a different time. The streets of some cities (I am thinking mostly of Varanassi, Mirzapur and the surrounding districts, where I have spent most of my time), with their crowds and smells, rickshaws dodging free-roaming animals, and small boys pushing massive carts laden with fruit and vegetables, strike me as the closest I am likely to come to understanding what London might have been like a hundred and fifty years ago.

By the same token, I rather suspect that simply observing Indian life gives a remarkably accurate idea of what it might have been like to live in the UK at a time when there were servants in every household with any amount of money. From a simple cook and cleaner in lower middle-class households all the way up to grand houses with twenty or thirty servants, and where even the simplest meal was prepared, cooked and served by one or two staff. I find it interesting to note how servants are both ubiqutous and invisible, just as they were in 19th Century England. Casually talked about, politely spoken to, but mostly treated as a matter of no more concern than your laptop, DVD player or washing machine.

All of this is a roundabout way of getting to a topic of more relevance to this blog, which is my interest at seeing that, while off-the-peg suits are by no means unobtainable here (particularly in the larger and more 'western' cities), in rural areas the way clothes are chosen and bought harks, once again, to the situation in England a hundred or so years ago. Cloth merchants and small tailors are everywhere and a man who wants a suit or a respectable shirt is as likely to choose some material and have one made up as he is to buy one off-the-peg.

Of course, how good the suit is depends hugely on the cloth and tailor chosen, and I suspect most bear little relation to the quality we would expect from a 'tailor-made' suit, but I like the idea that, here at least, people are still getting clothes made by small, independent craftsmen.

Nevertheless, in any situation a degree of 'convenience-shopping' is inevitable, and I was particularly amused by the box-sets offered in one cloth merchant. Each contains a length of cloth sufficient to make one pair of trousers, and a length of cotton sufficient for one shirt - thus a man can quickly pick up what he needs to create the standard uniform of the service industry or low-end professional worker in this part of the world. To me, they were vaguely reminiscent of those shirt/tie/cufflink sets sold in some shops in the UK, except somehow less ghastly because they still required the cloth to be taken to a craftsman and made into garments.

WOW! A New Vogue Men's Shirt Pattern!

Friday, January 25, 2013
Color me happily surprised to see a Men's shirt pattern with some nice design details among Vogue Patterns New Spring Collection!
Here are the line drawings--
Although not mentioned in the description, this style certainly appears to have a concealed button placket...I wonder why such a prominent detail was not mentioned. And while described as loose-fitting, shirts designed with side-panels like the ones here can be altered for a closer fit. 
That said, the shirt as shown on the model looks slightly fitted to my eye, rather than "loose". But we'll know soon, because I ordered the pattern today, and when it gets here I'll make one in Roger's size and we'll see how it fits. I'll also give a full review of the pattern.
Beyond all that...
Because I am a Shirt-Maker by profession, drafting my own patterns for the shirts I design for my clients... I am thrilled to see that Vogue has stepped up and produced a men's shirt pattern that finally has some interesting design details for sewists who use printed patterns!
...and Vogue has a new Men's Suit Jacket and Pants pattern (V8890) in the Spring Collection too!

Jesse Draper Silicon Valley roots

In Silicon Valley, Jesse Draper's lineage is almost unparalleled. Her father is Tim Draper, a partner at Draper Fisher Jurvetson on Menlo Park's Sand Hill Road, a corridor known as the center of West Coast tech investment. Her grandfather and great-grandfather were venture capitalists, too.
Jesse Draper Silicon Valley roots
But the 28-year-old is famous in her own right, for "The Valley Girl Show," a Web TV show she created that started its fifth season this month ( Draper, no stranger to the camera, briefly played a character on a Nickelodeon series (produced by her aunt Polly Draper of "Thirtysomething" fame). "The Valley Girl Show" combines informative chats with a dash of irreverence, drawing on a culture in which tech workers try not to take themselves too seriously.
In earlier seasons, Draper is the first to admit, the show was a bit rough around the edges. Some of her guests - Scott McNealy, founder of Sun Microsystems; Barry Schuler, former chairman of AOL Interactive Services; and Heidi Roizen, a former vice president at Apple - may have been unprepared for her set, with its bright pink walls, couches and chairs, and the floral leis they were asked to wear while being interviewed.
Draper is seen bounding around the Stanford campus in a pink tutu, while a voice-over proclaims "Valley Girl!" in a tone that is meant to be a spoof on the vapid, ditzy Southern California Valley Girl stereotype.
Today, the show is more polished, and Draper has expanded her pool of interviewees to include not only the founders of the latest innovative companies (Hosain Rahman of Jawbone, Sabeer Bhatia of Hotmail and Tony Hsieh of Zappos) but also other famous figures, such as former Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, former Los Angeles Mayor Dick Riordan, and former heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson.
In 2013, her 40 new episodes will focus on technology and the fashion industry. Each episode runs about 15 minutes and garners 2 million views, thanks to partnerships she has forged with closed-circuit TV screens at airports, hospitals, chain restaurants, Roku and Boxee TV, and may soon be seen on in-flight screens on a major airline.
Draper, no airhead, can claim to be a Valley Girl two times over, splitting her time between Los Angeles and Atherton. Recently, she shared some of her choice hangouts with SFiS Style. They're, like, totally awesome.
Draper's favorite spots
Head Over Heels Boutique, 887 Santa Cruz Ave., Menlo Park. "This is one of my favorite boutiques on the Peninsula. Not only do they have incredible shoes and Parisian fashions, but they have a consignment shop with designer fashions that appear to never have been worn. I regularly find treasures here! Not many people know about that side of it. ... I almost don't want to share."
Cafe Borrone, 1010 El Camino Real, Menlo Park. "Have you heard of a 'frosted mocha'? I have never had such a heavenly coffee drink; it's more of a coffee milk shake masterpiece. I usually have a healthy lunch, a frosted mocha and then peruse Kepler's Books next door to pick up some new reading material."
Dutch Goose, 3567 Alameda de las Pulgas, Menlo Park. "As far as sports bars go, this is a Silicon Valley favorite and one of the only ones around. All are welcome, from the businessmen to AYSO soccer celebrations to two girls having a glass of wine. I know how to appreciate a good cheeseburger and Dutch Goose knows how to make them with their secret sauce unlike any I've experienced. I have grown up coming here, playing in the arcade and eating deviled eggs."
Prolific Oven & Bakery, 550 Waverley St., Palo Alto. "I'm a chocoholic and was raised on this chocolate cake. I definitely stop by far too often and order their chocolate-on-chocolate cake - usually for a birthday celebration, but do you really need a reason to buy a chocolate cake? I never do."


The top five pairs of shoes you should own

Thursday, January 17, 2013
In the style of previous posts, I thought I might share some views on a useful 'starting cupboard' of shoes. Of course, as ever, this is really just opinion and none of these are strictly required unless they happen to suit your particular style, lifestyle, and habit of dressing. I'm also not sure that I would say to anyone that five pairs of shoes is a 'starting' cupboard, so I've put these in roughly the order I would buy them if I were starting out now, and in this way they could easily be bought over a couple of years as funds allow.

Plain black oxfords
Sure, brogues are prettier, loafers are more comfortable, and brown more suitable for casual-wear, but a man with a pair of plain black oxfords can fulfil with confidence about 75% of all dress codes. Clearly, they're perfect with business suits of all shades, colours and cuts, and would only be inappropriate with very casual weekend suits. They can also, importantly, be worn with black tie (where brogues would not be suitable), white tie (patent leather is correct, but few would criticise black oxfords with a decent polish), morning dress, or just a reasonably smart blazer and flannels.

Brown Brogues
You'll need a casual pair of shoes to fill in the less frequent but more varied occasions where black shoes won't do. Weekend wear, wearing with chinos, wearing with tweed, wearing with jeans (if you must wear jeans), wearing with white cotton ducks to Henley, and so on. Of course, there are other casual shoes that could fill these gaps but few are quite so widely suitable. A pair of brown loafers are ideal with chinos, and nice with jeans, but hardly suitable to wear with a tweed suit. Polished oxblood monks might look cracking with a casual suit but are probably a bit much to wear with chinos and a blazer.

Of course, plain brown oxfords could do a similar job, but a) I love brogues (so you should too) and b) if you're going to have only one casual pair of shoes, it might as well be properly casual.

Deck Shoes
Ok, they might not be for everyone, but they do pick up the last straggling dress codes that wouldn't be covered by the two options above. Shorts, beachwear, that sort of thing. Only the most obsessive of iGent would insist on retaining suit and brogues on the beach or as he takes breakfast on his veranda on a sunny morning in August. For those of us with a pragmatic approach to dress, some kind of alternative is required. For me, at least, that alternative is deck shoes.

Loafers (black or brown)
Personally, I'd choose brown, but go for whichever you think you'll get more use from. If you wear suits Monday to Friday, then black loafers are probably more useful to break up the monotony and to give your Oxfords a rest. (Actually, if you really wear suits Monday to Friday then your second pair of shoes should probably be a second pair of black oxfords. Boring but true. Go for brogues if you want to liven them up.) If, on the other hand, your day-to-day wear is more of the chinos and jacket variety then brown loafers are more useful.

I favour a slim shape with rounded toes and the lowest-profile stitching around the toe possible and, for your first buy, a non-tasseled pair might be safest although I would be the last person to dissuade you from tassels if you're keen. For brown shoes, suede is an option, otherwise polished calf-leather is ideal.

Something fun, or practical
If you have all of the above then you're reasonably well covered, and it's time to pad out your collection. It might be that, for practical reasons, you just need another pair of plain black or brown shoes. If so, now's the time. If, on the other hand, you think you've more or less got what you need, then it might be time to stretch to something a bit different. Really love loafers? Perhaps time to get the tasseled pair. Always hankered after some monks? Buy some in black or brown, depending on your usual mode of dress. Live in a cold country and spend a lot of time wearing tweed? Perhaps go for a pair of brogued boots. Regardless, this fifth pair should give you something else to wear with many of your outfits but also something a bit special that suits your own style and that you'll take a particular pleasure in. For me, it's probably my tasseled loafers. And my brogued boots. And my patent leather evening shoes. I'm incorrigible.

The "Split Cowl Collar" Tutorial

Monday, January 14, 2013

This is a tutorial about how to add a wide or narrow, short or long, 
or overlapped and asymmetrical collar to any knit top.

First let's talk about the basic garment. The collar I'll be showing you can be added to any basic knit top.  Here are some examples of patterns by Butterick and Vogue that would work with an added collar. Note that the necklines are either "crew" or "jewel" in general shape and other words..nicely rounded and not particularly deep or wide.

I am going to show you how I added a wide overlapped collar (what I call a ""Split Cowl") to an otherwise simple knit pullover top. The bodice and sleeves are made with Rayon knit Jersey purchased from several months ago, and the collar is made from gray rayon ribbed knit that I have in my "fabric stash".  ** Please note that all seam allowances used in this tutorial are 1/4-inch---if you start with a pattern that has 5/8" seam allowances, the neckline seam allowance needs to be trimmed to 1/4-inch  **

Here are the bodice pieces shown side by side.  The front neckline is about 5-6 inches deep.  At the end of this tutorial you will see variations that have lower or higher necklines but the construction technique is the same.

The next step is to sew the shoulder seams--

Now the complete neck-edge (the "hole") needs to be measured.  I've found that the easiest way to measure the length of curves is to stand the tape-measure up on its edge, and that is what is shown below- 

Because the collar is going to be overlapped and so therefore "scientifically exact" measurements are Not needed, I am going to say that this neck edge is 21 inches around.  A collar needs to be made that is 21-inches long, plus a generous 3 inches for overlap and to have enough to seam the ends.  So the LENGTH of the over-lapped collar needed to fit this particular neckline is 24"...and I usually add an extra inch to give myself a little more overlap. Now what about the width?  I have made so many of these tops over the years that I know that I like the results best when the cut collar width (flat and single thickness before it is sewn) is 8 inches to 12 inches wide.   As you will see, this is an arbitrary width measurement, and after you make one, you will see the endless design possibilities by changing the width and shape of the collar. 

So I have decided that for this top, my collar will be cut 25 inches LONG and 10 inches WIDE.

WAIT! Before we all go cross-eyed...let's pause a moment and put this into perspective-- Remember...this is an easy'll see!  It boils down to this--A very basic rectangular collar is  going to be stitched into "the neckline hole" that you see above.  There, that's it in a nutshell!  Now let's continue....

Normally I just go ahead and cut out my collar from the fashion fabric and stitch it in. However, you can make a "test" collar from scrap fabric (that you can use as a pattern later) to see if you've measured correctly and like the width and finished folded depth of your collar.  Below is a piece of scrap fabric that has been cut to my determined 25- inch length and 10-inch width.

Then I quickly folded it in half lengthwise, and sewed the short ends with a 1/4-inch seam allowance--

Next I turned my "test" collar right sides out....and then overlapped it in preparation for it to be sewn to the neck-edge  (the yellow  pin you see is holding the overlapped collar at its raw edge....the folded edge of the collar is toward the bottom of the photo)--

The photo below should make things more clear. The bodice has been turned wrong side out, and the collar is going to be "dropped" inside of the neckline "hole", all the raw edges will be aligned, and the collar will be basted (by hand or by pins) to the neckline...right side of collar to right side of neckline.

Note that a yellow pin has been placed at the center back of the shirt and another at the center back of the collar.   Then...when the collar  is dropped down into the neckline "hole"... is shifted off center before basting, as shown below. The collar as shown below was quickly pin-basted  to the neck-edge in a one-to-one ratio (in other words, the collar is the same length as the neckline, neither one needs to be stretched or eased to fit the other).   If the collar is a little longer or shorter than the neck-edge, just increase or decrease the amount of the overlap.

To check the appearance of the test-collar, turn it right side out, as shown below--

I was satisfied with the appearance of the collar, and decided to use the same measurements for the "real" collar.  If I had wanted to, I could have quickly taken the stitching out and used the test-collar as the pattern for the "real" collar, but I like to just measure and cut simple rectangle shapes with my ruler and rotary cutter, rather than scissors and a pattern. So I did so with grey ribbed knit  The short ends of my ribbed collar were stitched and turned right sides out.....and then I hand basted the raw edges to prevent them from shifting before I stitched the collar into the neckline "hole".

In the photo below, the shirt is folded in half, matching the shoulder seams and the neck-edges. The collar is folded in half as well and compared against the neckline, as a guideline for how much to overlap the collar....and where to place the overlap (which is your can be placed wherever you want it to be).

 Then, as was done with the "test" collar, the collar is "dropped into the hole" of the neckline...right sides together, all raw edges even.

The collar is stitched to the neckline with a 1/4-inch seam by sewing machine or serger. The seam can be left as is, however I  like to finish the seam so that it lays flat by top-stitching it down from the right side, as shown below.

Below you see the finished collar and bodice from the right side--

As you look at the photograph above...are you wondering how a collar that is the same length on each short side, now looks like one edge is quite a bit longer and...that now, somehow, the collar is asymmetric? Here's why: The upper side of the overlap is exactly OVER-lap. 


Well...because is has to go up and OVER the other side-edge of the collar, it merely appears to be shorter!  And because the under-lap does not have to do anything but lay merely appears to be longer!  I just love when a straight collar "auto-magically" becomes asymmetrical  just because one side overlaps the other :)

Here are some variations of the design based on the same theme--

This red velour top was made with a more shallow front curve, about 4" deep.  The collar was cut about 9" wide, with No overlap.  The collar was fully interfaced with Pro-Sheer Elegance Fusible Interfacing from so that it stands up on the neck a bit. Additionally, because the collar was interfaced, the entire  neck-edge and shoulders were reinforced  with a 3/4-inch wide strip of the same interfacing, as shown below.

This version in Aqua stretch velour features a deeper U-shaped neckline, and the collar was cut about 8" wide with No overlap.

This collar was applied to a neckline about as shallow as the Red top, and has about a 4" overlap and is the widest of the examples shown, it's width is approximately 12".

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and see what a simple technique this is for adding an interesting design feature to any basic knit top!
