I took the collar off and followed the instructions. It does lay so much better now doesn’t it? It looks great when I try it on. The next step is to finish all of the edges with bias binding.
This is the bias binding that I made for finishing the edge of a slipcover. It was 3 inches wide single folded so I cut off and inch of width of the single fold. That was 2 inches total. I hope that makes sense to you. Now I have to get my iron going and make double fold out of this bias binding. I have over 6 yards and it is going to take me a while but it will look good. At least I think so and I am going to be the one wearing it. I will be pleased with it.
The next post will be the finished jacket.
