Piping A Pointed Collar
Yes, you can sew piping to a pointed collar and it is incredibly easy!
Pin the piping to the right side of the collar along the seam line. Measure to determine exactly where the piping will turn the corner and mark the collar with a wash-away marker. Clip the piping fabric at the point where it will turn the corner and around the curve. Stitch close to the piping using a zipper foot or a pin tuck foot. *I find that it is much easier to stop and start again at the corner instead of pivoting the needle. You can now complete the collar following the pattern instructions.
