|Sewing Bias Collars|
Well starting with this as the basic pattern of one of the bias pieces you will need to sew all of them together.
Place the ends of the pieces down with the grain lieing parallel
Now you can sew the "bias tape" to the gathered shirt collar. Start at one end and go around till you are close to the other end. Now you need to cut off the extra. Cut off the extra so that the cut is along or against the grain but not on the bias. sewing your seams in the directions of the threats of the bias tape wil make for stronger and better seams.
