The instructions indicate the collar can be worn up or down, but I couldn't get it to point down. It actually doesn't bother me. I should have taken a picture of the inside, but I forgot. I folded the bottom of the back facing under twice and stitched it as a hem. I considered topstitching it to the shirt back, and that will probably look nice on a future version. I made sure to catch the rest of the facing in as many other seams (shoulder topstitching, sleeve) as I could to keep it from flopping around. All other seams are finished with French seams.
