Red Shirt Peter Pan Collar

I saw this New Look pattern and really like the look

I didn't buy the pattern though.  Made it myself, maybe that's why it doesn't look as nice.  This is my first time sewing collar ever.  And it is kindda hard.  =(   I did the bias on the sleeves and that took quite a bit of time also.  The 2 black lines in the front, didn't buy the rickrag whatever it's called, I used my black bias.  I made the bias tape myself, that took some time too.

Started this at 8 pm, sewing sewing sewing until 2:30 am and had to go to bed, my eyes couldn't open no more haha.

This morning I add another hour to the project, but maybe need another 30 mins to fix the zipper in the back.  It's kindda loose for me at the waist line.

Anyway, I am proud of me, but not very happy with the finished project.  It doesn't fit very well.

Sorry the picture are blurry.  My almost 4 year old daughter needs some photography lessons.  Haha

Here are my pictures.  The collar turned out good, but the darts are not right.  Saddddddd

This is the only black and white polka dot skirt I have.  =)

Didn't put my make up on so I rather cut my head off from the pictures rather being scary looking haha.  I don't want to scare you away.
