Additional Notes

This sewing pattern includes all pattern pieces and step-by-step instructions with illustrations.

I didn't have much experience with collars and this was my first time making "real" cuffs. I was pleased with the outcome and think it's a good pattern to learn those skills with.

I really like this pattern. It is a classic style with a modern fit.
