When stitching and turning collars, revers and cuffs, there's a couple of things which can help get a better finish. First, slice your interfacing off on a diagonal line across the corner, a couple of mms inside the corner (so there's no interfacing bulk at the actual point of the corner). Second, stop the machine just before the corner and reduce the stitch length so that when you cut close to the stitching at the corner the stitching is small enough to hold the edge without bits of inside fabric trying to pop out.

Revers is a tailoring term for lapels to put it simply. I believe is has more to do with the cut in (notch) between the collar & lapel.

Good tip. Question - what are "revers"?

Thanks Petro. Reducing stitch length is a great idea. I'm going to do that next time.
