STEP 4

  • Joining the collar to the shirt.
    Firstly you measure the neck to see if it is exact measurements with the collar created, if it's not then u trim to the size. (mind you it's better for the neck to be small when cutting so as you can easily trim later), then you join the collar to the shirt.
