Thank you so much - I lost several hours of my life trying to figure this out. Your tutorial makes it so much easier to follow than my pattern instructions!

Thank you thank you thank you!

Thanks for your reply, I had wondered about "ease-stitching" as the instructions tell you to do that to fit the sleeves, and they worked out well, but there's no mention of it in the collar instructions... hmmmm.... I might just try it anyway and see if it helps.

Thanks marypoppins!
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Please Help - attaching shirt collar (Built by Wendy pattern) on: October 17, 2006 02:03:10 PM
I've been making the shirt from the Built by Wendy "Sew U" book. I've nearly finished but am having a huge problem attaching the collar.

I use the notches on the back shirt piece to match up where the collar stand should fit. Once the collar is in place it only reaches to the inner edge of each interfaced front section (where the buttons and buttonholes will go). So I have about 1.5" spare, exposed seam at each side of the collar.

I've looked at bought shirts and the collar stand seems to reach right round the top of the shirt, neatening the top of the interfaced front pieces, and providing the space for the top shirt button. So why doesn't mine fit?

I've checked and re-checked that I've cut all the pattern pieces in the right size. Is there something I'm missing? Any help or advice would be great.

princess76, that pattern is beautiful, can't wait to see your pics.

Can I join in this sew along, even though it's getting a bit late? I'm new to sewing clothes (not sewing). I'm desperate to sew some new clothes, I hate buying them. I'm working on an autumnal aline at the moment with appliqued leaves (I do love applique!)

I'm new to sewing clothes (not to sewing). I've started with the Built by Wendy Sew U book. So excited to find this thread. I've made three versions of the aline skirt and and have nearly finished my first shirt (I'm taking a brake due to frustration at the collar!)

I'll post pics soon. If I have success at the three patterns in the book, I've promised myself 4111 - I love some of the dress versions i've seen here on crafster!

For the next ones I might add either fleece or batting. Do you have suggestions as to which might be better?

Thanks for the inspiration!

I haven't tried fleece, that would probably work well. You just need something that's thick enough to quilt, but thin enough that it'll bunch up when you close the bag.

Thanks for the compliments!

Thank you so much, guys. It's great to have some feedback.

OriginalYouth, you're right about care instructions, I'll get onto that.

Thanks for the compliments, Sivi, I like your Etsy store, too.

I've just recently opened on etsy and would love some feedback from all the crafty folk here. Good or bad, I can take it! What do you think of my purses, bags, pillows? What about my prices, info, descriptions, bio?

There are so many great crafters on this forum and I would love feedback and any advice, criticisms etc.
