The collar on the Dude Baby bib!

Several sewers have had questions about the collar on Dude Babies (P189). Since you sew the layers of the collar on one at a time, it is a bit different than traditional methods of sewing collars onto a main panel). So here's some pics that might help!
With right sides together, align the collars to the prepared bib panel (both layers sewn rst, turn rso, press, align the prepared tie in the center of the bib arrangement). Make sure there are loose 1/4" seam allowances in the very center. Sew the edges as shown in the above picture with 1/4" sas. 

Fold a collar up and press   - with seam allowances down.
With right sides together, align another collar piece as shown above, pin. Sew around the edges - notice the red thread seams (leave the bib section open for later hand sewing).
Remove pins. Clip corners. Turn right side out.
Repeat for the other side.
Make one very precise 1/4" cut in the very center (the brown fabric only).
Fold the raw edge of the open part under and hand sew from the center to the pink arrow.
Of course, you do this for right and left sides of the collar!!
