Approx. 4 cm (15/8 in) from one front end of band, work a 2.5 cm (1 in) long vertical slit (like a buttonhole). Trim ends of ribbon at angles.
For the velvet collar, use the same pattern piece, but trim away the extending ends of attached band. Cut collar piece 2 times from velvet. Iron interfacing to wrong side of one velvet piece.
Lay velvet pieces together, right sides facing. Stitch together along outer edges. Trim seam allowances. Turn collar right side out and press. Topstitch 5 mm (3/16 in) from seamed edges. Finish inner edges together. Pin velvet collar to petersham ribbon on attached band of satin collar and sew upper edge in place by hand.
To wear the collar, overlap front band ends and run one end of ribbon up through the slit. Lay ribbon ends toward back and tie in a bow.
