Begin by pinning the collar to the garment - leave facings open
Fold facings back on fold line to top of collar
Stitch 1/4" seam
Take a 1.5" folded bias strip and begin pinning it
to top of collar, overlapping at facing
Bias strip is pinned all the way around
Stitch with a 1/2" seam
Clip corners at edge and turn right side out, pressing folded bias to the inside.
Pin bias strip all the way around the collar
This is where you can choose to whip-stitch the bias strip down
if you don't like hand-stitching,
you can top stitch the collar in place
Here I machine stitched the bias in place
make sure you begin and end just to the inside
of the edge of the collar so that the top-stitching
does not show when you fold your collar in place.
That's all there is to it! My Peter Pan collar is attached!
