How to sew the Collar – Carme Sew-Along

by Pauline Alice
The Carme blouse pattern 2.0 is here! As it’s one of my first pattern, the sizing was not up to date, but I’m happy to tell you that you can now sew this blouse from size 34 to 52.
The pattern includes a print-at-home file as well as copyshop version. Get your copy here: Carme blouse pattern.

Have you tried your Carme blouse yet? There are just a few steps to finish now and you’ll be ready to wear your lovely creation out on the street…

I don’t know about you, but sewing the collar has always been kind of stressful for me. What if it doesn’t fit into the neckline? And if the fabric doesn’t lay flat?
With this method of attaching the collar (thanks so much to Anna from the blog Paunnet for suggesting it while she was testing the pattern!), collars are going to be so easy now…

Have a great weekend and see you on Monday!

¡¡¡Me encanta!!! El canesú blanco es super bonito y la tela estampada parece super agradable para llevar en la primavera. Espero leer tu post pronto. Enhorabuena Mary Carmen, tu blusa es todo un acierto!

Je ne connaissais pas cette astuce pour plier proprement le rebord du col à l'intérieur, c'est génial ! Ça va trop me servir pour mon prochain projet… 🙂

Je suis ravie que ça te serve! Moi aussi j'adore cette méthode depuis que je la connais.

I don't understand when the instructions/video says one side of the collar is going to be longer than the other to go over the wider placket? How can this be when it was cut on the fold, both sides will be exactly the same length?

Yes, the collar is cut on the fold but the notches are not at the center, they are placed slightly off-centered to compensate for the different widths of the plackets. Let me know in an email if you still have trouble with this part 🙂
