Alright, so I am working on McCall's M4369, a basic mandarin dress:http://www.mccallpattern.com/item/M4369.htm?search=m4369&page=1
and I am stuck on the mandarin collar. Here's a link to the diagram:http://www.craftster.org/pictures/showphoto.php?photo=101970
and here's the exact instructions for this step:
Pin collar to neck edge, right sides together, matching centers and triangles to shoulder seams. Clip neck edge as necessary. Baste. Stitch, keeping pressed edge of collar free. Trim seam allowances. Press seam allowances toward collar. Hand-sew pressed under edge of collar over seam.
I don't know, I am not making the connections here. Maybe I just need someone to hold my hand and walk me through it. Help!
