I have been doing this for about 10 months now. When DH shirts are good everywhere but the collar is getting a fray look I trim & flip it . ....Take the tips of the collar & trim them to be more circular & stitch over to close. Remove the tiny collar fastening buttons. Take the entire collar & turn it over now so that it is French style collar. Pin in place ... use same color thread if possible & straight stitch down. I hand stitch the collar tips (now rounded) to the inner fabric of buttonholes on one side & inner fabric of button side on the other. Now the shirt is ready for a neat look & it will last allot longer.
