To properly sew a collar, the undersides need to be interfaced. Interfacing is also known as fusible, and it is a thin material with a glue on one side, that you iron on to the wrong side of your fabric; this gives the fabric extra stiffness. When making a collar, the interfacing goes on the under collar and under stand (the layer of fabric closest to the body). Here, we show you one way to properly interface a collar and collar stand.

    To keep the undercollar from “rolling” to the top collar piece, trim 1/8 inch/.125 cm from the interfaced undercollar. Then match up all edges; sew slowly from the middle-top of the collar to one side; then do the same to the other half. the slight difference will keep the bottom from rolling up. Don’t forget to trim the points of the collars for a smoother finish.
