    I just folded over the neckline (cutting a tiny nick at the bottom of the v so it would fold properly) and sewed another seam below the fold. It looks decent, although I think bias tape would look better if I knew how to properly use it. http://www.burdastyle.com/projects/casual-t-shirt-dress

    This is lovely, the elastic is a good tip. X

    I’ve just had the same exact problem… I read that sewing slim elastic along the neckline pulls it flat

    I just made something similar just with long sleeves. I used stretchy lace trims, came out nice. I just posted mine so you can take a look if interested. Good luck on yours:)
