One of the toughest parts of the Kinsman project so far (at least for me) seems to be the collar. When sewing the collar, it seems like the top fabric wants to slide out, exposing more of the bottom fabric. It even does this when sewing muslin.

In other words, as I sew the collar, instead of the raw edges of the fabric staying together as pinned, I start to see more and more of a gap between those raw edges.

If I were using the Momentum, I could see why because the fabric is much more slippery. But as mentioned, it is also doing this with cotton. I’ve tried this on two different sewing machines, as well.

Is it because I’m essentially sewing around a curve? Should I be notching the seams?

Or maybe a pressure foot setting?

Any thoughts?
