Here are the steps I have followed to sew a shirt collar (on the read jeans dress).
Cut out collar and collar stand pieces based on your pattern.
You should end up having 2 collar pieces and 2 collar stand pieces.
I like to make the collar piece that will be on top a little bigger than the other, so that it allows the fabric to fold nicely when the collar is done. Notice this in the next picture. I put a pin or a mark on it so I know it is the piece on top.
