1. Drape the Bodice Front panel on the coat and determine a collar shape.
2. Cut the collar out through the backing only leaving fur fibers intact. Remove fur from 1/2" seam allowances.
3. Stitch 1/8" elastic loops in place.
6. Pin outer edges of lining in place and slip stitch to fur collar. The outer edge could be machined but I find that the collar will lay nicer if I take the time to lay it in place perfectly.
