I hope it is clear enough and that it will be useful!

Here's a picture of the collar I drafted on burdastyle very popular peplum top (that I re-drafted because it was really not adapted to my shape).
Hopefully I will have time soon to take decent pictures!

    Hi, and thanks. A wonderful post, but I have a question. I’m stuck not clear on how to sew the color to my garment. I’m making a shawl/cape, but my peterpan color is two-layers, sewn right sides together, then turned inside out. Is this collar here also two layers? Or single, with the interfacing?

    Do you know how i’d sew it to the color? The seam where I’d attach it is raw, but double, and i just don’t get it – (sorry, i’m a returning after 30 years novice) do i sew both layers simultaneously to the inside, the turn it to the outside or….? won’t it be bulky that way? I’ve used the interfacing. thanks so very much!

      I don’t really explain how to sew it because this is a drafting technique.
      But anyway, i’ll try to help you :) :
      I think they are two ways of attaching the collar. What I did for that one is that I used a facing : you pin the collar on the neckline, right sides together, the two layers of the collar together (with raw edges), and on top of that you pin the facing, right side down.
      You sew it all together, and then turn it inside out and iron.
      After that, sew the facing to the top, under the collar so it’s invisible , that way it won’t be bulky.

      Of an other technique, which seems neater, would be this one :
      But you have to plan on making the under part of the collar longer.

      I hope this helped… Good luck !

    Thank you so much for sharing this! I haven’t made my own collar like this but I’m sure this will come in handy with some future projects!
