Collar Stand Drafted and Cut

I cut the collar stand so that the plaid would be on grain at the center front of the shirt fronts, meaning that there would be a seam at center back and the biasing of the fabric would occur in the back of the neck. Since I do not want biasing and stretching I used the Pro-Woven Fusible on both the collar stand and the stand facing.

I cut the stands extra long so that I could walk them against the staystitched neck edge of the shirt and add notches at the shoulder and center back.

About Mary Beth

I am fascinated by changing patterns and colored threads. I sew garments and am teaching myself to machine knit. Since selling the building that housed my workrooms, The Stitchery, I'm searching for a place to set up the knitting machines again. There must be room here somewhere!
