so pretty! I think I will try to do one! I can't tell but it looked like you used piping instead of a zipper? I want to do the neck also and you have helped with your project!

Yes, I used piping instead of a zipper. Good luck with your project!

Hi Ziggy, I'm an advanced beginner do you think I would be able to figure out/understand how to construct the collar? it looks pretty intimidating. Even though your T-shirt is an inspiration I'm not sure if I should set myself up for failure knowing that I'm a beginner. What do you think?

Well, if you're following along with the Craftsy class and it's going pretty well, you should probably be able to do the collar if you take your time at it. I did little tests along the way. For example, using a scrap of the same knit fabric, I tested out the piping before doing it on the cut collar pieces. I also did more basting than the pattern calls for, to stabilize the collar pieces to themselves and to each other. Oh, and be sure to mark center front carefully on the collar. You will use that to figure out how much and where to overlap -- though there is a little wiggle room. Good luck!

What a fun shirt. I am sure you will love wearing it. Nicely done with great color choices.
