Send a PM to the moderator of this thread, CynthiaSue, and ask if she could move it to the forum you want.

Even though my collar stands need improving, I can try to help. First staystitch the neckline. Then, clip to the staystitch line and spread neckline to fit the collar stand. Make sure dots and/or notches match.

Thank you so much! That worked! The pattern did say staystitch then clip but I think my staystitch was too close to the edge. I fixed it to 5/8" and it worked!
