  1. Great fabric choice for your beautiful coloring. You asked for opinions on why the neckline is standing up. You explained that you had added width along the center front fold to accommodate wider chest. This also added to the neckline; thus it doesn’t hug your neck as intended. Next time, try adding chest width by spreading the front bodice between neckline and shoulder point. This adds witdth without affecting the neckline. Another good trick when you have a lot of widthwise stretch is to cut the neckband just a bit smaller. When you stitch to the neckline, the band must stretch, but will snap close to the neck along the folded edge. Happy sewing!
