My Creative Space - collar trouble

I have been experimenting with a delightful vintage girls dress pattern.  The collar wasn't sitting right and it was irritating me.  So back to the instructions.  I sewed it on wrong.  I think I ironed it out of shape too, so will probably just cut out a whole new collar and try again.  Other thing is, I don't know what size it is.  The pattern is VERY unclear.  The instructions are weird, and are a jumble of confusing words.  Thank heavens for the little pictures...

I'm a shocker at following instructions on patterns anyway...I tend to just go by the pic and hope for the best :-)

I have trouble following patterns...I tend to look over the instructions and then make it up as I go.
That fabric is gorgeous, please post a pic of the finished dress.
