how did you draft that collar from scratch?? Amazing Leslie, I felt such a huge pang of guilt about not sewing more for my nieces!

I drafted a basic bodice sloper (w/ a jewel neckline) using Emily's measurements and used that as a rough guide for the inner shape of the front and back collar pieces. I knew I wanted the collar to extend to her shoulder so I used that as the starting point for the outer curve and drew the curve I wanted around to the CF and CB respectively. Cut the front on the fold and added SA and "velcro allowance" to the back. I had to cut the collar as 3 pieces (front and 2 backs) and use shoulder seams b/c my scraps weren't big enough to do the whole piece in the round. I didn't fully trust the measurements I had for Emily (they were taken by a non-sewer using a piece of yarn), so I confirmed that I had drafted the inner collar big enough by drawing a circle w/ the circumference of Melissa's youngest and similarly sized kiddo's neck. The circle fit within the allotted neckline just fine so I knew I was on the right track! (Thanks again Miss M!) If that doesn't make sense, PM me!

I am doing a Cleopatra costume for Halloween myself this year so I decided to check out who else has done one on PR... and much to my pleasure I found your review! The glue-on jewels are a great idea, might have to copy that :)
