Pad stitching using a sewing machine saves time if your taught to do sew collars on by hand. The other effect is that your collar retains its shape so if you want extend the life of a jacket by shortening it, you know it will still look great.
Make sure you follow the neck curve, usually found on the pattern piece and then just keep sewing in the neckline space until there's no more space to sew.

FYI for those who can't find the picture; click on the camera icon above. The icon is next to the "Web site/URL:" title. Then on velosewer's blog go to August 11, 2008. Click the pictures to enlarge them. This is a cool trick I haven't seen before. Velosewer, you have many people who would love to see a step by step explanation including myself.

Thanks for sharing this technique. It looks very interesting, and the close-up picture on your website (11 August 2008) really helps to clarify the technique. Beautiful collar in the full jacket photo. I too would like to learn more about this tip, would you considering doing a step by step tutorial? Regards, Elle
