LOL I am at 20 weeks preggers, and I have long hair, down to my butt. Hopefully I can make it before c3. Looks pretty simple... Only, this will be my first sewing attempt at a full garment! All of your tips have been fantastic! I like the pattern that was in the mccall's version, it's just that the v neck seems to ride low. Hope that I get the collar. My collar shape was like <=> if you know what I mean. I might round out the bottom to be more circular, my version is too tight. I didn't have a pattern and just had my hubby draw out my shape on test muslin, and I sewed it together. Unfortunately, I had to have darts, next to the boobage, cause I can't do those extra seams without having lots of difficulty. Did you all line the collar with interfacing or something? Just want mine to stand up without looking sad, but lay just right. I was thinking collars are essentially two pieces, right?
