Shirtmaking -- Collar Details
Rather than the traditional home sewing method of attaching the collar to the collar stand and then sewing the collar stand to the neck opening, Coffin's book details how to stitch the collar stand to the shirt first and then attach the collar to the stand. I like this approach because it allows you greater control over the positioning of the collar in relation to the center front.
So, do you do shirt collars and how do you sew them? Have you ever tried David Coffin's method and what do you think?
