This afternoon at the thrift store I score 15 or so....um... things, that look like they are some sort of... all-in-one collar and collar stand interfacing type idea. They look just exactly like a cut-in-one-piece collar and stand, with a heavier layer at the stand part, and integrated plastic-things to keep the point of the collar... pointy I spose...

ever seen such things in your life? Any idea how I'd sew them in?

I am not 100% sure myself, but I think you have what was likely manufactured for a ready-to-wear company for men's tailored dress shirts. I would think that you could make a shirt with a collar stand...sew the under collar and under collar stand together first...add the interfacing...then sew the top collar/collar stand together...then attach it to the under collar/collar stand by sewing all the way around up to, but not past the seam allowance at the neckline. Press the top collar stand seam allowance at the neckline under....sew the under collar stand to the neckline, etc. That would be the only way I could see to do it.

Oh cool, I was thinking that to use them I would have to do those all-in-one collar-and-stand things in order to use them...

They definietly are not anything like ANYTHING I have seen at the fabric store so you are probably right, they must be for a clothing manufacturer...

thankyou for your ideas!
