Making Wool Long Coat #101B, and I am REALLY having a hard time understanding the assembly described in the directions…..I have made a notch collar with a regular 2 piece collar, but this has a stand and it tells you to cut open the dart before sewing so that the entire collar seam and dart can be sewing as one continuous seam.
I have been sewing over 15 years now and I am really stumped on how to manage these two….thinking of giving up on the stand and re-drafting the collar to go without it, I have seen many tutorials on how to do the notched collar, but none with the stand, and none with the dart under the lapel. Anyone have advice on this or similar Burda patterns?? Do you have visual aides???
