Attaching the collar stand to shirt:
The shirt back and front are attached at the shoulder lines.
Sew a stay seam around the neckline, as it is curved and it will distort otherwise.
Match the marks on the collar bands to the shoulder seam (not the topstitching) of the shirt.
Start sewing on the seam line on the collar stand. Straighten the ruffles that are created underneath the seam.
Turn the seam allowance inside and press it under towards the top of the collar. Pin the stand around, along the stitch that attached the stand to the shirt.
You can now hand stitch it or machine stitch it, topstitching it from the wrong side (backstitch at the ends).
This stitch will show on the right side of the fabric as well.
