Hi Vani,

Great to see the tutorials.I have few doubts on the pattern of the peter pan collar.

Is AE the neck folded in half of the front and EC neck folded in half of the back bodice?...Im getting a weird shape when i do that!

Please revert back on this as soon as you can! Thank You!

Front of the bodice is folded in to half.Then neck line gets folded where
A is the mid point of the front neck line.Need not fold back as there are 2 portions in the back right back and left back.you can take any one .E-C itself is half of the back neck line ' you need not fold again
