Collar Stays

Margie Rose | Posted in General Sewing Info on

I just made a beautiful dress shirt for my husband.  He is difficult to fit with over the counter dress shirts.  I was really proud of myself until…  When I sewed in the collar stays I winged it.  The pattern I used didn’t include instructions for stays.  I made the stays too long.  I think I sewed them in ok, but I would like to feel better about making the next shirt.  Does anyone know where I can find directions for collar stays?

    David Coffin's Shirtmaking book has everything you could possibly want to know about making shirts. I highly recommend it.

    And IIRC, Taunton has it on sale for 50% off. Click on the banner at the top of the page. ;-)
