Once again I am turning to you experts for help.
I am attaching a picture of the instructions for the neck band for the bishop dresses that I am attempting to make for my granddaughters.
I am going to make a size 3 for both of them, but I am having a difficult understanding about the neck edge measurements.
According to my pattern, the neck band should be cut 13" long for a size 3.
But also, according to my pattern instructions it says, "Cut the neckband 2" wide by the child's neck measurement, plus 1-1/2 inches."
Both my granddaughters necks are 10-1/2 " around. So, am I understanding that I would add 1-1/2 inches to THAT measurement for a total length of 12 inches? even though the chart states that it should be 13 inches for a size 3.
Just to clarify this before I dive into this with both feet...lol.
Thanks for prompt answers.
