Martha asked about the collar that I used on the Farewell To Arms in the last post.
It’s a plain band – a rectangle cut on the straight grain. The finished collar is 2 inches wide.
Here’s a photo (tried pinning it to hold everything flat. The neck opening has a pretty tight curve, so it gives shape even to this straight collar.)
And here’s a diagram…again, it’s not very neat, but sometimes a line drawing gives better information than a photo:
The collar was cut all in one long strip. First the short ends were seamed together , then the upper edge was stitched. The seam joining the two short ends was positioned to be at the center back, on the inside – no extra bulk where the edges meet the front, just like the collars that Louise designs.
I hope this answers your question, Martha!
