Shiny!

My blouse is almost done. As I started putting things together, I thought "Wow, this pattern is a lot easier than I expected! It's a Vogue pattern, which I always figured would be harder than the normal ones. On the other hand, they're owned by McCalls. And McCalls patterns are hit or miss. There are parts where you say.. "Oh, I get it!" and parts where you think, "Gee, I'm not psychic >:O"
And that's pretty much been this blouse, too. I had an easy time with everything until I got to the part where I was putting the collar together. The collar peices are included in the front panel, so it's only a 4 peice pattern. Two back peices, two front peices. And while I cut out the correct sizing for front and back, I can't seem to make any of this crap fit together, no matter how hard I try. I've read over the instructions over and over again, and they don't really tell you how to assemble the collar. The pattern peices themselves don't really explain it either. Once I figure out what to do, though, it'll be awesome. Almost everything is hemmed up XD It's a horrible habit, but really. Once I get the back together, I'll just have to hem the collar and finish two seams on the inside and it'll be set.

I tried it on, and I think it fits well. I showed it to Matt, and he said..
"Wow, that's shiny"
Indeed D: But now I'm paranoid that it's too shiny. I think it's great, but it's a really loud top. It's.. shiny
