I started out making this costume with a set pattern, then I ran into some trouble and had to deviate from the original design. Basically, I'm trying to make a shirt (kinda like a turtle neck) but the problem is I can't pin it around my own neck and then get out of it! I don't have a dress form or anything to help me either and I'm getting discouraged. The rest of the outfit is looking great - not to sound vain!
. Any pointers? How about a little encouragement? It's upsetting me and I really don't want this little hiccup to derail me!
