Changing the neckline is easy.
- Trace around a favourite neckline (I used a t-shirt), or draw your own freehand.
- Cut out your new neckline pattern on paper.
- Place the new neckline pattern over the original pattern, matching up the shoulder seams.
- Make the neckline facing using the new pattern for the shoulders and neckline and adding 2 1/2 inches (6 cm).
- Cut out the facing and line with iron on interfacing.
- Make sure you can get the dress over your head. In this case, I left an opening at the centre back.
