This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1920 edition. Excerpt: ... on p. 87 for the smaller overall. 3. Making and setting in sleeves (see p. 87). 4. The Collar.--(a) Place one half of the collar to its lining, with the right sides facing. (b) Run and back-stitch the two together along all sides except the neck curve. Turn the collar right side out, well flatten the join, and tack the two thicknesses together about I in. from the raw edges to keep them quite flat. (c) Turn in a narrow fold along the neck curve of collar and lining. Make the other half of collar in the same way. 5. Setting on Collar without a Band.--(a) Place one end of the collar to the middle of the front neck-slope of yoke, and pin the collar lining to the right side of the yoke, taking -in. turnings. (b) Next, pin the other end of the half collar in. in from the back edge of the yoke (Fig. 117). This will allow for the yoke to overlap, but not the collar; the two back ends of the latter-should just meet when the garment is fastened. (c) Turn in the raw edges left beyond the end of the collar, and neatly seam them together. (d) Hem the collar lining on to the right side of the yoke, and the collar on to the yoke lining. (e) Set the other half collar on in the same way. 6. Collar with a Band.--(a) The collar should be made as above. (b) Take two strips of material the length of the neckslope + J in. for turnings, and 1 in. wide. (c) Place the two halves of the collar in between the two strips of the band, so that the front ends of the former just meet in the middle of the latter. (d) Keep all four thicknesses even along the raw edge, and run and back-stitch them together, taking-m. turnings (see Fig. 81, p. 58). The length of collar-band beyond the collar is to allow for the wrap at the back of the garment when fastened. (e) more
