blouse pulling to the back

articchar | Posted in General Sewing Info on

I made a blouse which has a v-neck in front and gathers in the back. The weight of the extra material in the back gathers pulls the front up. Any suggestions for fixing this on an already constructed garment?

    You can try sewing a small weight either at the bottom of the v or to the front hem. Or you can add a chain into the front hem.

    Do you have room for small shoulder pads that would help the blouse stay in place?
