I've 98% made Simplicity 2588. I managed to successfully complete a FBA on the princess seams (my frist!) and the bodice looks all nice and every thing...except for the yoke collar. It's all wavy around the shoulder area. Any suggestions on how to fix this? I'm considering the merits of lopping it off and drafting some other kind of collar...

It is wavy becasue the yoke isn't matching your body.
If you were to pinch out fabric (little dart) where the yoke is wavy it would then fit your shape.
