The absolute easiest way to sew a collar by Nancy Zieman

Collars are so easy to sew that even a first time stitcher will have success! Learn Nancy Zieman’s “hands-down easiest way” to sew collars, corners, and sleeves.

The Absolute Easiest Way to Sew Collars

In the second episode of The Absolute Easiest Way to Sew Collars on Sewing With Nancy, Nancy shares her favorite absolute easiest way to sew collars, corners, and sleeves.

  • Interface the collars: Cut out two collar shapes from lightweight fusible interfacing and fuse one to the wrong side of upper collar, and one to wrong side of under collar.
  • Meet collars right sides together. Stitch outer collar seam.

  • Grade seam, trimming under collar seam allowance narrower than the upper collar.

  • Press seam flat; then press toward under collar.
  • Understitch, stitching seam allowance to the under collar: We like to use a multi-stitch zigzag. Or, you could use a straight stitch.

  • Fold collar along first stitching line, right sides together. Meet collar front edges. Notice outer collar seam allowance is already graded (trimmed) and completely understitched. Nancy Zieman’s wrapped-corner sewing technique is what makes it the absolute easiest way to sew collars!
