What a neat fabric!  I always wanted to use a 'disco ball' type like that, but all I ever find is stuff with plastic sequins in the clearance isle that's atrocious.

Gorgeous!  You're going to do great at your recital.  What kind of fabric did you use?

Alright, so I am working on McCall's M4369, a basic mandarin dress:

and I am stuck on the mandarin collar.  Here's a link to the diagram:

and here's the exact instructions for this step:

Quote
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!
