Two years ago I said: "I'm learning a lot about late period tailoring, construction and finishing. But there have definitely been some wrinkles. So, I guess, go in with some caution, and if something doesn't seem right to your purposes, you don't have to just trust it."

So yeah! The straight front women's doublet in MMv2 has a collar drafted to height L-o. Maybe that's just perfect for the style you're going for - tall, rolled over, probably worn open. If you want a straight, closed collar that fits under your chin, you can bring that whole thing down to L-d. (and still use one dedo for tapering the front). Really. Photo collage shows before and after.

Anyway, if you want to see actual content from me, you'll have more luck over at @catrijnmakes on Instagram.
