It’s been a mystery to me how companies can make good collar. There are solution for small size collars:
- The fabric must be thin yet not too thin.
- Thin is not enough. The fabric must not ‘stiff’. If you think, chiffon is thin and good for doll, no. It’s not always like that.
- No use of interfacing.
- Interfacing can add thickness. Even if with thin interfacing, still.
With those theory, I still don’t feel satisfied with my doll collar.
One day, i bought esadol school suit/jacket. The collar is very nice and fall on the bodice well. I then started watching the collar. The bottom collar uses very thin kind of fabric. yet, it’s sticky. I didn’t know what it is and how come it was sticky to the top part of collar.
I’m working on a project with collar right now. I was thinking about esadol jacket. I then think, perhaps… TRICOT? (please google: tricot interfacing to get to know what it is). Could it be? I was not sure myself but I did cut tricot as the bottom part of collar instead of same fabric or thinner fabric.
I am processing it so I don’t know the result yet. Wanted to do it this evening but i was afraid, it might take more concentration than usual. I couldn’t do it if my boys are around. If I did a mistake or if the theory is wrong, I might doomed.
