Greetings 2 July 758am MST
I am a seamster, and for a guy, have pretty fair experience. I am president of our local county Scottish American Society. My emphasis is on Scottish costuming and apparel items. I have made kilts, sporrans, two complete Scottish costumes for my wife, and other things as well.
I am currently working on a set of twelve matching uniform shirts for a bunch of lads and lasses who are members of a local pipe band here in south west Idaho.
I have modified a McCall’s pattern to include box-pleat pockets with scalloped edge flaps and epaulettes at the shoulders.
Four of my five “larges” can use the “large” neckband and collar combination. One of the lads is a “large”, but has a neck like a bull.
Having stated all this………………..what do I need to do to modify the yoke and shirt fronts to accept the XXL neckband? Which is what it will take to accommodate his large neck.
In case there should be any interest out there; I have a fair bit of experience with tartan fabric and the knowledge of Scottish tartans, and would be honored to share what I know, or help find info for anyone who needs help.
