Collar edge sewn on

I have the top and ends of the collar edge sewn on and it looks great!
****Question for anyone who has done something like this-will it be ok to leave the bottom free or will it curl when washed?
All suggestions and advice greatly appreciated!!!

I have ofted added tatting to clothing and if you want wash and wear simplicity, stitch down all of the outer picots. Otherwise when you wash it they will curl and look ugly. Blocking lace that's already on clothing is a stinker and that's what you'd have to do each time you wash it. Blind stitching all of the picots takes a long time, but not nearly as long as it would take to block the lace on the garment every time it comes out of the wash. Tack the suckers down and make life easy on yourself.

I agree with Sharon. Remember what Ben Franklin said... a stitch in time saves nine! (I think it was Ben!)
