    Oh great karin! thanks! I actually made one toile up and I think I took it in by 2cm not 1cm so it distorted it a bit! so i’ll try with 1cm now!bx

    This is just what I need! Never knew how to avoid gaping necklines, always just fiddled around with it till it somehow worked. Thank you for this how-to!
