Can you explain more about what you did to the neckline? Was the collar sitting to high?

Thanks for noting that it didn't end up as tight-fitting as you originally thought. I'd make a 16 if going by the envie, but looking at the finished measurements on the pattern pieces, I need to make a 12 to be within the ease that I like. Thanks much!

Great job, I love the color, and you did a perfect hem! Thanks for posting pics of you wearing it. Yours looks better than the pattern pic-I just bought this the other day at Hancock's $1 mccalls sale :o) Now I'm glad I did!

I think the shirt fits you quite well. All the effort you spent making it is well worth the result!

Glad you got through the problems and ended up with a nice top. Your hem does look fabulous.

Nice shirt! Once you get the fitting bugs out, it can be a great wardrobe staple. BTW it looks like it fits well across the bust, but needs some adjusting around the tummy and back to make it a fitted shirt. I like the neckband only style, even if it isn't what you intended when you started.

Cute shirt, like the way your hem looks, looks nice on you.

When you post the other photos, can you also post one of the hem treatment? LOVE the colour!

You should consider adding your hem treatment to the tip section - I'd like to try that method. I commend your patience doing the collar 6x! Your top looks really nice.

For all the problems with the collar you have a great outcome. I think it looks tres chic and I might just copy you!
