1. Part of the collar difficulty might be fabric choice. A lot of the late 60s and early 70s patterns were suitable for stable knits – the sort that have very little stretch and a lot of body.

    In addition to experimenting with collar interfacing, you might want to experiment with the neckline interfacing – just to make sure there's sufficient stability/support to keep the collar upright.

    That's a very cute pattern!

  2. Where do you find all these fab patterns? I like the version with 2 buttons and the pocket too. The fit on this one looks great on you.

  3. If a stiffer interfacing isn't working you could try reinforcing the front corners with a little feather boning, like the points of a man's dress shirt collar.
