The collar and sleeves tutorial

Sorry for not posting for a while but I am doing some not computer related work lately - very rare phenomenon when it comes to me - so I just couldn't squeeze any sewing time or even blogging in.
A small photo tutorial how I made the final part of the collar and how I finish the sleeves. At this place I must say, that the sleeve pattern is the original JJ sleeve. I just got too lazy to make a slit and all this stuff and opted for elastic.



The collar extension to the ruffle is a basic Peter Pan collar.







I didn't make any pictures of ruffle/collar attachment. Basically you just sew them right side to right side to each other and than turn them right side out. Sounds easy but is a bit of pain in the ass. It is better to do it before you fix the ruffle. I made the mistake to do it afterwards cause I decided on the collar look afterwards...



cheers and good luck.
