I just wanted to say that if any of the ladies in this particular bridge class "happen" to be in the area and "drop" in to see me when I'm there I can offer some advice on how to proceed seeing that we didn't quite have enough time in class to properly go through the whole process.... It was just quick demos and hope for the best!
What I learned during this class is that an old shirt that fits well is the best way to get accurate measurements for the collar, stand and cuffs. Once you know what the pattern pieces should look like then it will be very easy to figure out the dimensions and shape them accordingly, already in class there were some people who shaped the cuffs like the ones on the older shirt. That is exactly what I want to see happen, take the instruction and then make changes to suit your particular taste or lifestyle.
