  • Cut twofold, about 2 inches wide cross-wire strips from the rest of the fabric and tack them to make about a strip of 5 yard.
  • Lay the collar flat on a flat surface. All round the lower edge, turn the narrow hem on to the right. The upper edge of the hem should be turn on to the underside, so that when the collar you can get the right side out when the collar is folded.
  • You will need to attach the ruffle or frill to the collar's edge. You will achieve this if you make at regular intervals, just tiny pleats. At the top half of the collar, tack the underneath.
