I have been sewing on and off for about 45 years.  I started sewing in 4 H as a kid and I have always understood the general principles of how to put stuff together.  But I have never tried to sort it out myself.

I wanted to add a wee bit of a collar to the Ashton Top I was making for with my yellow York Pinafore and searched how to draft a collar and away I went.  

And voila, a collar.   

It's not perfect and the sewing is my usual work, but I am thrilled.  

I drafted my own collar pattern and it fit the designers pattern perfectly with no adjustments. Woah.

Sleeves tomorrow.
