Cut a strip of fabric about 30cm long and 1,5cm wide. The stretch should be across the strip (so that it stretches as little as possible along its length). Fold it in three (se the picture). Finish the neckline on the back-piece by making a fold along the seam-allowance, and stitching the folded strip of fabric on the wrong side of the fabric (pin first). Use ordinary straight stitches to prevent the neckline from stretching. Stitch about 1,5-2mm from the edges of the strip.
