|How to Sew the Collar on the Graduation Gown|
During each graduation ceremony, every student will try to make sure that his or her graduation gown and cap are all in place, so that he or she can attend the ceremony without any error and embarrassment. However, many of these students often forget or do not take note that the collar on the graduation gown is equally important as well.
What will it be like if you go up to the stage, extend your hands to receive your graduation certificate from the school's dean, and the moment you extend your hands, your collar on the graduation gown simply just fall off your neck and drop to the ground. Can you imagine how it feels? This surely is a very embarrassing moment; especially this is the most important day of your life. So, this article will teach you the steps on learning how to sew the collar on the gown.
The first step is to try on the gowns and cap personally after you just bought. You can try wearing your shirt or blouse below the gown and place the collar over your graduation gown and see if the collar is being affected. After that, make sure that you hang your gowns and collar properly, and if need to, adjust them accordingly.
The next step will be to use safety pins on the graduation gowns and the collar and pin them securely. Then, you can use more safety pins to pin the collar along the top part of your shoulders. After that, you can take off the graduation gown and collar, and the sewing process begins.
The third step is then to sew the collar onto the gown of yours. For this, it is advisable to your hands to sew the collar personally, instead of using the sewing machine. Start sewing by putting the sewing needle into the graduation gown as well as into the collar. Keep sewing to form stitches on the gown and collar, so as to secure them in place and tightly. This sewing process may take around thirty minutes or even longer, depending on how fast you sew and your sewing skills.
The last step to sewing the collar on the graduation gowns will be to try on the gown that you have just previously sew the collar on. Hang the gown and the collar properly, to see if the whole outfit is adjusted properly. If more adjustment still needs to be down, you can take off the stitches; repeat the whole process as mentioned above, and also at the same time adjusting your collar, so that eventually the whole outfit stands out.
