Using a contrast fabric for inside of collar?

    I am making this from a thick linen and am wondering if I could make the inner collar and facings from a lighter cotton. I have cotton that pretty closely matches the color of the linen, with a simple print, so I don’t think it would be too garish, but I’m not sure if you need both layers to be the same weight for structural purposes. Any thoughts, ladies?

    Liesl, I saw that last night and was bowled over by the details!!! And I love that it is inside like a little secret treasure. Precious.

    I like the idea of a contrast on the inside of the collar – it could match the bias binding on the inside.
