Before I get to the collar, here is a photo of what I had accomplished up to that point. Here is my jumper being modelled by the lovely Mab... Mazzil... Maybelline... Ma? Jenny's dress lady.
Jenny was kind enough to show me the tricks to the collar. I was a dumb nut and would sew both ends together in the past instead of sewing only one side and then flipping the lip of the other half. If you don't sew, what I said won't make sense, but if you do, it may make sense. :)
Unfortunately I only had enough time to complete the collar before I had to leave. Sad too because I was there for a good 4 hours. Damn chatty gals. But before I left, Jenny was kind enough to let me raid her button drawer and find me some buttons for the jumper. So now I have all the notions I need to complete my jumper.
I leave you with awful photos of me sewing on the floor. Jenny likes to hog the table tops for her things and makes everyone else sew on the florr. Just teasing. This is actually my perferred method of sewing. I can;t sew on a table anymore... I am used to the way I sit on the floor with my foot on the pedal. Any other way feels quite awkward to me. Like I said... these are horrible photos of me as I need to get my roots done.
In the next chapter I will talk about finishing up the garment and take a photo of it.
