Classic Oxford Sew Along Day 5: How to Sew a Shirt Collar

Welcome to day 5 of the Classic Oxford Sew Along


Monday we prepared our patterns and cut out the pattern pieces. Tuesday we worked applying the interfacing to the pattern pieces and created the button placket. Wednesday we assembled the back by creating the box pleat and learned how to do the burrito roll method to assemble the shoulder seams. Thursday we learned how to sew a sleeve placket.

The video clips off right at the end. (Technology isnt’ always my friend! I ran out of space on my camera.)

Finish topstitching the collar stand all the way around. That’s all we missed.

After you have your collar attached, complete the rest of the pattern. That’s it! You have a Classic Oxford!!
