I am still tired though. I've worked on Gertie Coat Muslin #2 issues all day long. I still haven't looked at my Dress Kit Book, but I am going to grab it on my way to the nearest recliner in a bit.
I sewed up Muslin #2. It looked good in the back, BUT the collar still stood too high up above my shoulders.
I had to get a new assistant to help me since Phylly is out of town today and tomorrow visiting her daughter. She has FIVE grandchildren all weekend, and I do not envy her.
The only person I could find to help, of course, was Jerry. I'm sure he wants to run and hide somewhere when I am sewing on Saturday and Phylly isn't around. He didn't have to do too much. Just measure the giant gap in the back of my collar so I knew how much to add to it. THEN, later, he had to measure how much to subtract from it so I could put that in at the shoulder.
Here is a photo of what I did next. There is a total addition of SIX INCHES around the outside edge. I must have really big something. I sure don't know what though!
