RE: [sig] Standing collar for tunic?
- I went to Joann's and looked in their dollar patterns for a pattern with a
mandarin collar and use that for my base.

- I would recommend using interfacing on your collar. That's what I did to
my Lord's and beaded the collar as well, and it still stands beautifully,
even after washing several times. Be sure to curve the collar, a
rectangle will not work.

- Thank you all for input, I think I am going to end up using interfacing.
I spoke with a seamstress at our Barony meeting last night and she gave
me several good tips.

- Thank you for the rectangle warning...that is what I was considering.....
Has anybody tried an all bead collar? I'm referring to those iddy-bitty
- I did bead the collar of my husbands tunic and it worked great with the
interfacing. It is not fully beaded, but does have 5 large medallions
going around the collar, and the beads are larger than seed beads. He
has not had a problem with it falling or flopping over at all. I also
used a good linen, and I do not dry it in the dryer, I hang it upside
down to dry.

- if you want to do some of the late14th to mid 15th C
Polish houppelande (?) collars, then a rectangle
shaped collar on an angled keyhole collar works.
