I am a complete novice and have to keep looking every technique up as I go along – was actually very rewarding up until I got to step 3: baste integral(?) collar right sides together with back neck edge and switch between clippings.
I keep thinking I am going to stitch the neck hole shut from what I understand – I just can’t work out what it will look like and how this works, what is an integral collar?
Step 4 confuses me further: turn self-facing to inside on FOLDLINE ( tried to see this fold line on pattern, can’t find this at all).
If anyone can help out a poor beginner, please let me know… Am going slightly crazy :)
