This one is a fail (look at the crazy wide panel by the shoulder, what would be in your armpit). But, I’m gonna fix that and make that apron work because I like the fabric and lace trim additions on the front.
I decided to give a bigger collar a try here. After many failed attempts, I pencil and papered up a pattern that looked like it would work.
Now, to attach the collar… I’ve got a few ideas, here’s the first:
Just a piece of white bias tape, all the way around the neckline, making it very obvious and flat (if that makes any sense). What troubles me most is the different in whites, between the bias tape and the actual collar fabric- I don’t like it. And, should the edge of the collar be top stitched?
I think now I need to try the other method I have in mind, where all the stitching is hidden on the inside (underside) of the aprons neckline.
Wish me luck. Right now though, I think I’ll take a break- get on the road bike to clear my head and enjoy the spring sunshine.
