Not that I am to this point yet... but I should have the pattern done this weekend and be well on my way to thinking-trimmy-thoughts. So I am going to gather a few items here for reference.

Stephan Praun's Pilgrim's Cloak, 1571: Piped and slashed trim at collar and 'frogs' for button closures...

Albrect Durer sketch: Knotted detail on hanging ends...

Albrecht Durer, 'Two Musicians' (1504): Narrow double band of trim - common treatment...

I really like the double band of trim myself. I did that on one of my gollars. (and promptly shrunk it when after getting drenched I put it in the drier on low. How the hell did I miss the prewash on that bit of wool?!?! *Cries*)

/wails at unintended wool shrinkage story

The horror! No joke, this is a huge fear of mine with some of my projects. I have visions of pulling a size two dress out of the wash... *cries*

It's traumatic, for sure.

I'm at the point where I prewash when I buy fabric, and then can't remember if I've prewashed, so I do it again before I start sewing, just to make sure.

I wouldn't be surprised if that "trim" was actually integral to the collar. Handstitching changes everything.
