That is fantastic. Now I need to figure out how to save this so I can find it the next time I make a collar

Do you ever still use that collar turning clamp tool? I purchased one, and I do like it. But this also looks like an excellent way too -- thanks for linking to it!

I have used something similar for turning very small shapes (decorative pieces) on a blouse I made the summer before last and it worked very well. The way I did it was to sew up to the point finishing with very small stitches, and passing the thread tails inside the shape, then sew over where I'd already stitched and continue with the rest of the shape. It wasn't quite as clever because I had to clip off the threads outside - this didn't show in the finished piece.

What a great tip! And timely, too, as I need to make some pastel oxford shirts for DD, which she needs for her new job. Thank you for sharing your knowledge!
