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 Pellon Sof-Shape 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.

  • 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’s wrapped-corner sewing technique is what makes this The Absolute Easiest Way to Sew Collars!
