This is a link to Threads Magazine's detailed article featuring the great Charles Kleibacker's technique for pin-basting tape to a deep V-neck to ease in fullness and prevent gaposis:

http://www.threadsmagazine.com/item/11421/hands-on-with-kleibacker-lessons-for-working-with-a-bias/page/all

It also includes some of his techniques for sewing with bias: bias layouts, sewing seams, cutting and sewing bias tubing for spaghetti straps.
