With right sides together, pin the lining and the faux fur together. Leave a 6-inch opening in the bottom.

Sew around the outside of the collar with a 1/2-inch seam. Remember to leave a 6-inch opening in the bottom so you can turn it right-side out.

Turn the collar right-side out, pin the raw edges under and hand sew the opening closed.

If you want to be able to remove the collar quickly, hand sew a hook and eye to each side of the bottom of the collar. If you’d like your collar to be a little more permanent, tack the faux fur collar to the coat at the shoulders and the bottom.
