For years I have tried to make a decent high collar on a t-shirt. Now I have found the solution which works for me. I attach the collar to the neckline in the normal way, then instead of attaching the inside edge of the collar to the neckline, I just leave it free and fold it to the inside. I can make it higher or lower as I please.

thanks for your comment Jean, I had thought of folding it to the outside but the seam would have to be made differently.

Regine, what a fun (and easy to do) idea. If you serged a rolled hem on the inside edge in a contrasting color - you could fold it to the outside and have yet another option. I never thought of doing this, but you've given me inspiration. Thanks!

I'm sorry - but I really don't quite understand what you mean?? I get it now - thanks for the pictures - that surely helps. What a cool idea.
