I did add a sketch. Sometimes I have some problems with the english when it comes to a clear explanation. You see the big arrow for the direction of the straight of grain. The idea is that a soft material will have most of its firmness on the straight of grain. It can easily get wider when it's on the bias direction. So of course the pattern should fit, but even then this is a good idea for a soft material. This batiste is woven but on the bias it tends to have a lot of give. That's what I try to avoid in a neckline

Oh, what a lovely, lovely cotton batiste. That's about one of my favorite shades of blue, and one of my favorite flowers, the iris. Now, when you say "the straight of grain direction in the bodice front was taken parallel to the neckline," does this mean the straight of grain is parallel to that slanted, angled vee at the neckline? And you say, "This prevents the neckline from getting wider," does this mean it does not gape? I'm very curious about this straight of grain situation!
