so can SOMEONE explain the collar part to me? I understand what part of the collar it is an everything, I just dont know how to attach it.. Is it atached so it is coming out between the lining like the tie? or is it just sewn right sides together at the back so that it folds over to the front?Huh ANYONE!?!

I made this one without, and I rather like it.. We had a lot of old jackets from an old parade but this one didnt ahve a collar so i didnt have to worry! The material was great, it had some sort of design(see pictures!) the inside looks like a plain white, but has a neat diamond stitching(there was an old shirt factory here in the 80's and my grandmother used to buy their scraps.. i loved this fabric but couldnt find anything for it until now..
AND... I made it all without ahving to redo it! wooohoo

I'm not the greatest when it comes to straight top stitching,etc. but getting better..(as you can see the thread i used is not the right color.. but i like that and it's for me.. but i covered the square stitching on the tie with an old 80's toronto pin! ignore the horribly unflattering dress i am wearing.. an the MGD bottle... lol



Edited because i didnt realize these pics would be so huge! ok now they should be better!

From what I can tell just reading it, seems you could do it either way.  Original attached the collar only as a decorative effect between lining and front of bag - sort of laid it over the right side of the front and treated the collar and front of bag as one piece.  I would probably baste it in place to keep it from sliding when sewn.

HTH  your bag looks fun too, great texture in the suit you choose to use.

Later  on, laress made one where the collar was attached to the back of the bag to make it a functional flap.

Hmm, ya know, if you want it to be a longer flap, I wonder if adding an extension of the back, or sewing the lapel onto a the end of a flap - and just  attach  the flap to the back-  like you would in a messenger bag for instance- would get you what you want.  Checked neany's profile and see she hasn't posted since Feb. 05 so not likely she will return right away to answer you all. 

At any rate a wonderful bag and so glad she put the idea and some info here.  Best wishes for success.

im confused as to how the skinny end of the tie is attached...  Huh
also... is the collar bit a flap to close it or just attached to the front

if anyone knows that would be fantastic, but this bag is so awesome ill wing it if no one does. yay for winging it

again, totally awesome bag
