Here is my second method for attaching the collar. The seam is under the collar, hidden from the inside and outside of the apron. Worked pretty well, but you have to make sure your two collar pieces overlap (or at least touch) in the front and back to avoid seeing the stitching. I stitched the three layers together (minus the actual collar) to make it lay flatter.
I do like the look of this method better. A few more tries and I should get to down.
I even tried top stitching the outer edge of the collar with a fancy stitch.
A smaller collar, back to bias tape to attach.
I like adding buttons for that school girl look.
If you recall this apron from yesterday- it got the chop. The bodice part was just too jacked up. I added a wide waistband, to be worn high on the waist.
I think it might need at least one pocket, and some lace to the waistband too. Decisions, decisions…
