Collar with stand - tutorial / Kraag met staander - uitleg

English Nederlands

As promised I've written a tutorial for a collar with stand, in the way it is described in David Page Coffin's book Shirt making. The main difference in construction from all methods I've seen is that you first attach the stand, and then the collar.
As it's become a very picture-heavy tutorial (more than 20 pictures), I made a pdf file for this that you can use. You can find the file here.
I will also try to upload the pictures to a public album, so that these can be viewed. It just takes to much time to upload it all to blogger again.

De kraag met staander op mijn bloes heb ik gemaakt met behulp van het boek Shirt Making van David Page Coffin. Het belangrijkste verschil met andere methoden is dat je de staander eerst aanzet, en daarna pas de kraag.
Deze methode heb ik uitgelegd in een pdf-bestand, dat je hier kunt vinden. Ik zal proberen de foto's ook in een openbaar webalbum te plaatsen, zodat je ze beter kunt zien. Het kost me gewoon teveel tijd om dit nu ook weer in blogger te plaatsen.
Het bestand is nu nog alleen in het Engels, mochten er onder jullie zijn die het graag in het Nederlands zouden hebben, laat het me dan weten.


  1. That is a wonderful tutorial on making a collar with stand. Thank you for sharing with us.

  2. This is something I've yet to master. I'm bookmarking your tutorial.

  3. This is a great tutorial. I'm looking forward to trying this technique... Attaching the stand first sounds more obvious to me.

  4. Wow, very interesting approach. I'm looking forward to trying it too.
    I sew the collar the same way you explain it in the tutorial, I've learned it by deconstructing RTW shirts.

  5. Thanks so much for taking the time to put this together. I'll definitely try it on my next shirt.

  6. Outstanding! Thank you so much for putting this tutorial together!

  7. Hello Sigrid ! I've tried your tuto, and it's the method I've ever tried. My collars are now wearable !! Love them. Thank you so much.

How to sew a sleeveless top with facings

How lovely to read the nice comments on my jacket. Grumpy without coffee commented that the original artist for the cartoon (which apparently was for books) was Sarah Andersen. Thank you for mentioning it. Beckster asked about the way I closed the center back seam of the lining. I did it by machine. She also said “Although I have not tried it, I have been told that the lining can be made by using the pattern minus the seam allowance and facings.” Well, certainly not without seam allowances, it should be without hem and without the facings. Important is that you have about 5 cm hem in the jacket for this to work. And I would always make a center back pleat. It gives you space to move without the lining pulling on the fabric. Next time I make a jacket I will try to make photos of the process of bagging the lining (Patsijean said she would have liked to see them and probably more would be interested). Might take a while though, see the end of this post.-----------------------------I mad…

Hilarious description

This week I bought the January Burda issue and browsing through it this top, and especially its description had my attention. Written by someone who has no understanding of modern, functional fabrics and never goes to the gym. Don’t know whether it’s the same in the English issue of the magazine, but in Dutch it says “Sport shirts often have the disadvantage to be close fitted.  This restricts your movement. Our suggestion: make this shirt with a full draped back.“I didn’t care to check their description of sports shirts they published before, but thought this one was hilarious.Off to trace a pattern from this magazine (not this one).

Dress Burda June 2018, construction picture

Once in a while a pattern shows up in a magazine that I want to make immediately. This Burda dress from the June issue is one of those.It’s mainly the linedrawing that’s interesting, as the fabric they used for the magazine issue is not really showing the design lines. There would have been better accent options for the piping they uses. If you’re like me and in general don’t look at the Burda instructions but do it by experience or your way anyhow, DON’T go on autopilot with this one. Sleeveless dress: I close shoulder seams at the last possible moment. Not here, as you have to sew the bias band in between the center and side parts. The band has no seam (and I wouldn’t add one, too many layers of fabric), so the shoulder has to be sewn earlier than I’m used to.Darts: I was inclined to sew all darts as first step and realised really just in time that the front dart is taking up the edge of the band. Front and back band! I was stupified why the angle of the band was not matching the si…
