I've spent most of the morning draping the collar for the dress. A few drafts later, and I think I've finally come up with a workable pattern. I'm stalling cutting out the velvet right now!
Obviously, it's not perfectly pinned, but I think it's close enough that I can use the pattern. I wanted to do it in one solid piece, but it looks like that is not going to be possible. There is a seam up the center to make everything fit right. I kind of wish I had been able to get it just a smideon more pointy at the bottom, but I think it will work just find the way it is.
