Double Shawl Collar

Mrs. C's picture

 Good day-

I'm trying to create this collar....http://voguepatterns.mccall.com/f2145-p ... ge_id=1232

I took a regular shawl collar extended it, and  I pleated it to create the effect.  Now I'm stuck.  should a stitch on the fold to hold the pleat?

It doesn't look like this in the picture...it looks more natural....how do I get the "fold" to stay?

Thanks

How deep did you make the pleat?  I would make it almost as deep as the outside collar to get the desired effect.  Or, as has been suggested, make 2 collars.
