Vogue 9237 presented some neckline fitting issues. It may be the changes that I made to the pattern that has contributed to the I-feel-like-I'm-choking feeling of this jewel / round neckline.
The pattern calls for a button and loop closure at the centre back but instead I installed an invisible zipper. And now there is the issue of wrinkles across the base of the front and back neck suggesting that the neckline is too high.
The plan is to establish a new neckline shape. Since there is a zipper at the centre back seam most of the reshaping will have to start away from the zipper and increase towards the centre front. Or maybe the issue can be solved by letting out the shoulder seam a bit at the neck edge tapering to the 5/8" seam allowance at the armhole edge.
Something to think about for now. Until tomorrow...
