This is a lovely dress. Other reviews talk about various issues with this or similar necklines. A gaping neckline is usually caused when a larger busted woman uses a pattern size that is too large (in order to get the girth). Because the shoulder is wide, it would have been better to use the next size down pattern and make a full bust adjustment. You would do the FBA in the princess seam. With a smaller size you wouldn't have the extra back width to deal with. Remember to check the waist. Also, you could take up a bit of the neckline extra by making the tucks a bit wider; tapering them toward the neckline - just a wee amount. E.g making tucks 1mm larger along tuck line would bring in the neckline 12mm or 1/2". (1mm = 2mm per tuck x 6 tucks = 12mm) - you could actually stitch right next to the first time - no seam to remove. Make a couple muslin fronts and see how each works. Happy sewing. Lovely dress!!!

Love your print! I made this dress but haven't reviewed it yet. I also have Narrow Shoulders and I just added 1,5cm (5/8in) to the neckline all around. It is still wide but doesn't slide off my body...just the hanger!
