I’ve had this black sweatshirt for about a year. I know I bought it because of the amazing fabric and fit, but, it wasn’t cutting it. The style is a bit lackluster and although there was a part of me that loved it, the “meh” factor won out and I didn’t really wear it. So, it was either going in the donate pile or going to get an update. When I saw this amazing ribbon, I knew what needed to be done.
First thing I had to do was measure the collar. The length of the ribbon should be the collar measurement x 3 + ½” (to clean up the ends)
Box pleat – ¾” under (1-1/2 over) – 1.5” total – enough for full collar
Stitch in the middle to hold pleats down.
