    I’m making sailor suits from my own pattern and trying to decide if the collar piece should be made out of a single thickness or a double thickness. I’m planning to edge it in bias tape as part of the stripes pattern.

    The fabric is a nice heavy sateen cotton with a tiny bit of stretch.

    Thoughts on how to decide single vs double? Pictures show front and back. The back is split for the shirt opening.

    Thanks!

    I did double when I drafted mine out of a heavy cotton linen blend. I also interfaced the collar to keep it crisp when worn by an active child. Hang on and I’ll attach pictures.

    I thought I had a back view, but I guess not.
