Ok, I know it's possible in the small scale- as in putting a flower made from quilting cotton onto a t-shirt.

But I am specifically asking about putting a collar like from a mens dress shirt  onto a t-shirt . The t- shirt has to be stretchy enough to go over the head. So, when I put the collar on, do I stretch the neck of t=shirt as far as I'm sewing the two together? won't that make it misshapen..
What type of needle should I use?
I have a really cute idea but trouble with the implementation.. any help is much appreciated! I have been sewing forever but not a lot of experience with knits.

Are you wanting it to function like a dress shirt collar (be able to button it closed) or do you just want it to lay open and be decorative?
