These were the only reasonable pictures from the series DH made. But you'll get the idea. There seems to be a little extra space in the right collar, which I didn't see in the mirror. Perhaps a few handstitches to take out and do again. For the rest it's OK, though I think that next time I'll start with 38 for the back, it still has a bit too much space?
The skirt is a Knip mode pattern that I made a year ago.
I did not make pictures for the construction of the rest of the collar. Next time. This time I was just busy finishing the blouse and the white is difficult to make pictures of anyway.
Basically I follow the method that is described by Claire B. Shaeffer in her book "High fashion sewing secrets". For the upper collar I sewed the upper and under collar (cut on the bias) together till the point where it meets the lower part of the collar. Then the under collar is sewn to the front and back, the upper collar to the facing. A little handstitches to keep the two layers neetly together is what I did for the upper part of the notched collar.
