Beverly says, "This Tom and Linda Platt pattern (OOP) is made on the bias and lined. I cut the bias pieces making sure the angle was right. I pinned the fabric to tissue paper in order to cut accurately. Sewing on the bias was easy. This fabric was wonderful to work with. Also, I used polyester lining (cut on the bias) that I already had. I used a needle size 14. The learning in this project for me was the edges of the collar." Thank you, Beverly!
