Fold each collar piece on fabric fold line, right side facing in. Stitch lengthwise edges together between markings. Clip seam allowances at markings. Turn collar pieces right side out. Press seamed edges but do not press fold edge. Baste remaining edges of collar together. Baste front ends of collar to neck edge of (outer) upper front pieces, from seam number 5 and baste back ends to neck edges of centre back pieces, from seam number 4, easing collar edges and matching clips to marked armhole lines. Stitch upper front lining pieces and back lining pieces right sides together with neck edges, catching collar pieces. Stitch lining right sides together with armhole edges, not catching collar pieces. Trim seam allowances, trimming corners diagonally. Turn lining up and stitch to seam allowances, close to seam, as far as possible. Turn lining to inside and press edges. Baste lining to upper fronts along lower and side edges. In front, turn each collar down onto upper front pieces (right side of fabric). Fold pleats in collar in direction of arrows and baste – pleats point toward neck edge. On the first pleat next to neck edge, turn front edge of collar toward lower front edge and baste to lower edge, up to marking. Lay upper right front on upper left front, matching centres (wrong side facing right side). Baste lower edges together.
