Gaping neckline on knit dress! Please…
Hi! I am very new to sewing, and in trying to sew a princess seamed dress with a low neckline that I altered, the neckline now gapes! I’ve made it in a now discontinued suedecloth knit. I altered the neckline and the facing (worked well, I thought) and it seemed to go fine – read all the books I have on altering necklines and followed the directions, but now the neckline gapes pretty badly. I think I may have stretched the fabric as I stitched for also the shoulder seams don’t match well. I used a lightweight interfacing that may be weighing it down (the suedecloth is very lightweight).
I would love to be able to fix this – I love the fabric! Is there anything that I can do to fix it? I made a shell, and it worked well with the muslin . . .
Thank you very, very much!!
