Wonderful tutorial.  I've been understitching for years, but I learned from you that I am not getting close enough to the seam.  I really enjoyed your tutorial.  I believe understitching and ironing as you go are two of the most important tips you can give someone new.  The Why and How like Cheryl commented are important.  Thanks again.

I couldn't tell from the video how far into the point of the collar she did the understitching.  Does any one know?

Thank you...I will put this to good use, on the blouse I am in the process of sewing . Under stitching makes the 

collar look so much better. My pattern did not state to do this.

Knowing the WHAT (what is understitching) and the HOW (stitch so the seam allowance is attached to the facing fabric close to the seam line) isn't enough.  This video supplies the necessary WHY.  If we don't know why something is called for in pattern instructions (which is where most of us will encounter the idea of understitching), it is easy for us to think we can "fudge" and omit the action in the interest of getting done with less bother and a little bit faster.  Talk about shooting yourself in the foot!    I know I will never again omit understitching when the instructions call for it -- and I might even think to use understitching when I'm winging my way through something for which I do NOT have really good instructions.
