Ok - so another dress has a gapping neckline. I could not figure out what I was doing wrong! I did a web search and found this article - duh! hehehe It works wonders!

Perfect for those of us with D cup and up!

The article is from an old newspaper - an interesting read.

My God, that really was a golden age of sewing, right! Now there are hardly any subscription magazines that include that sort of material. With graphics, no less. Also, my parents had a hot air popcorn maker like in the photo. You could melt butter (or margarine, more likely) in the little tray at the front. No Kabob-it, however.

Thanks for posting this. I did a search for the author, Krestine Corbin, and she had a paperback of sewing tips published in the late 70s and early 80s. And, back to the original topic, you might also look at Judy Barlup's tip on handling excess in armscye and neckline on knits -- http://uniquetechniques.com/Tips_Tech/tips_tech.html
