I was seduced by that darn silver metallic thread again for topstitching. I have had this stuff for ages ….why am I so enamored now?
After whipping out the cocktail dress, I wanted to start slow on the evening dress, so I start with the collar. For interfacing I went the vintage route of just using muslin as interfacing. It was perfect for the collar. Just the right weight. It added stiffness but was still pliable.

Then the dreaded topstitching. The thread kept breaking but I persevered.
I also did the same muslin interfacing and topstitching on the belt.
