Before I ask my question, you’ll need to know a little backstory…..
I designed and sewed my prom dress this year. It has a low back and a V-neck. Originally, I had planned to sew a small fabric tube along the neckline, lace a self-fabric cord through it, and stitch together the ends of the cord, thus creating a halter neckline. In my haste to finish the dress, though, I abandoned that idea and just haphazardly sewed a strip of fabric to the tops of the V. (Which is still a halter, now that I think about it.)
I ripped that strip off in my quest to improve the dress for the “Inspired by Threads” challenge. But now I’m not so sure about my first idea. I think that if I did that, there would be wrinkles at the center of the V and the dress would hang oddly. The V is pretty much a right angle, and the cord would, I think, be the one thing holding the dress up. (There’s elastic around the back and sides, to pull it close to the body, but that’s it.)
Am I right in assuming that center of the V would wrinkle? If so, do you have any suggestions for a clean, sophisticated neckline?
