JOIN FABRIC TO LINING
a. Place lining and shell collars right sides together. Fold excess out of center back lining, and sew from ½” past notch on right front where A /B join to left front notch where A/B join (this helps with turning seam allowances under binding later). Note: I sewed ½” past the notch to ensure a clean finish.
b. Press seam allowance toward lining and stitch just inside seam (this anchors the seam allowance to the lining fabric), changing thread color to match lining and department fabric
c. Grade allowance and clip curves
d. Clip at end of stitching half way into seam allowance to allow proper turning in next step
e. Turn stitched collar portion right sides out and press
