Glad you were able to make the recovery. I can't remember who orginated the "design opportunity" phrase, but I've taken it as my motto also. :)

Thanks Mini and MaryBeth; I ended up taking in a deep tuck at the center front. Now, I can actually wear the top outside. My husband pushed for the oh-la-la lace insert, but... Thanks for your suggestions.

Maybe a deep tuck at center front, running all the way down would work. This will look like there was a center seam as part of the design, and is an easy way to take in the neck and upper chest. I find that most patterns are designed too wide at center front, and this trick can sometimes save them. Using your upper chest measurements with McCalls is better for most women, and is what Nancy Zeiman and Palmer and Pletsch recommend for their McCalls designs.

How about a lace insert in the vee of the neckline? oh-la-la
