So that's why the model had a big-collared shirt on!
It looked, um, odd.
Why? Because there is no shaping at all at the collar. See if this close up helps you see what I"m talking about.
The pattern says to do a cable chain around the collar but this would just add to the oddness. The reason I didn't notice it originally was that the model in the pattern had a big collared shirt that obfuscated the entire top of the vest.
So. Do I buy a big collar shirt? Or is there some way to finish this off so the front becomes a bit more v-necky and less dorky looking?
I mean honestly, I would have liked it better as crew neck with a cable up the middle. Hmm. I could sew up the center seam and do that. That's an option.
Anyway. If you have suggestions please please let me know.
