Without my realize, i was working on yosd size. (I thought this was msd size because the height was msd).
The collar looks really good. The tricot theory works well. Anyway, as long as you don’t keep checking the bottom collar like third picture, it won’t be seen bad. It is ok in doll clothes but not in human clothes. It’s another toleration when sewing doll clothes.
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.
