Streamlined Shirt Collar

A reader tip for shirt collars

Whenever I cut a shirt collar that has a straight edge, I remove the seam allowance from the outer edge of the pattern piece and cut the collar on the fold. That way, there are no intersecting seams at the collar points, and the collar points come out nice and crisp.

– Judy Rand, Coconut Creek, Fla.
