Try again.

Here it is folks.  Coming along. I saw this collar on an old French farmer's "blue" work coat.

This is good stiff old thornproof. You can see my stock in the background.  I cut it with the two-man saw on the wall. 

    I am also very pleased with the balance. Nothing worse than a short front. See the front edge curl in ( hand work )

Sleeves will be set today. In NYC tomorrow for two fittings.

 This belt is higher. On the actual waist line.

 Opening the pattern gives the very necessary round length to the front. Also the chest dart.

 Opening the back also.  It is a good feeling when it all works together.
