I'm in the muslin stage of constructing this coat and have a question about the collar. How is the collar supposed to be attached to the neckline? They way I have it stitched in doesn't appear to be correct. There aren't any markings except for a notch that doesn't match anything. I've sewn notched collars before with no problem. This one is stumping me. Thanks.

Hi Lynnelle -
Your collar looks exactly right. The notch in the collar should be at your shoulder seam, the center backs should match (obv), and there is no marking for where the collar is supposed to end on the front neckline. It will probably look more like what you're expecting once you get the facings on.

Thanks Rebecca. I looked at the collar again today and thought that it might be too long. The notches are about an inch and half away from the shoulder seams and the collar points nearly end at the lapel. I think the collar is drafted incorrectly for the size I used. Thanks again!

Edited to add: The stitching in my pictures reflects where I stopped sewing. I could have kept going to the end!

Ah, I didn't realize the collar was so much longer. The top pic looks fine, but not if you could keep sewing all the way to the end! Indygo Junction used to have an errata page, but I can't find it anymore, so I don't know it that's an error that they maybe fixed somewhere along the line. I always walk my seams (make sure everything matches) before I cut, and I traced the pattern, so I may have corrected that and simply forgotten. Anyway, I hope you can get it to work, it really is a great jacket!

I found the errata page, but it doesn't mention the collar. I took out 1.5 inches in 0.5-inch increments (for a total of 3 inches) from the neckline seam, tapering to nothing at the outer edge. The collar fits perfectly now. Since I am making a lining, I have to check the back neck facing to make sure it matches properly.

Your coat is great. I love that it's reflective!
