Sewing class was among the best things that happened in my life. What started out to be a hobby turned into my passion. My teacher was good in teaching the basics and some more advanced concepts. Due to family responsibilities and health reasons, I could not enroll for many classes. But the courses offered are an ocean and what I had learnt is just a drop.
But with what I had learnt, a few things slips out of mind even with some proper notes. Collar making was one of them. Though I did remember many of the concept, some basic nuances I forgot. So one time when I tried to sew a collar kameez it turned out to be a disaster.
I had to convert it to a high neck kameez and camouflage the deep neck cut with a patch work. It worked out great and totally saved my kameez, but I did not have the courage to try it out again and salvage it later. There are a lot of tutorials in the internet about a collared neck, but nothing exact to the method that I had learnt. Then recently I discovered this youtube channel, Savi Fashions. If only she had come a bit earlier, I would have been more confident about my collared necks.

Thank you once again Savitha madam. Your tutorial really helped me.
