Perfect Collar Points

This technique, courtesy of Pamela from Off the Cuff, is apparently used in industry shirt making. I have used it many times, always with great results.


  1. Trim seam allowances on outer and short edges of the collar to ¼".
  2. Stitch the outer edge seam and press the seam allowance open.
  3. On the RS, lie a doubled piece of thick thread along the seam line with the loop hanging outside the collar.
  4. Sew the short edge of the collar, using a short stitch initially.
  5. Clip across the corner, taking care not to snip the thread loop.
  6. Gently pull the thread ends (not the loop) from inside the collar, turning the point in the process.
  7. Do the same for the other short edge
