I really like this pattern and have adjusted the "v" neckline to make it higher. I have a high round back and have tried cutting the back neckline lower. It made the top wearable, but I wonder is there a way to revise this pattern neckline in a better way. I have FFRP and a few other books, but the revision isn't sinking in.

Thank you all.

Cut a slash from the armscye to the other armscye, (don't cut all the way through) across your back where the fullest rounding is. Then tug in the middle of your back until it all lays flat. Then tape the slash shut.

I'm surprised cutting the back neckline lower helped; it never did me, but then maybe my high round back is higher and rounder than yours.

Thank you for your reply, but my problem is where the neck meets my back. It seems that I have acquired some fat there and that causes my neck and head to go forward and down.
