I shared on a recent post that my little black dress was not as long as I would have liked, see https://frugalfish.org/2013/04/17/zigzag-it/. On the other end, the neckline was longer than I wanted. In disgust, I sewed the v-neck closed for three inches, but it threw off the design of the dress.
I ended up ripping out those stitches and sewing a lace insert in the bottom of the v-neck instead. The dress drapes nicely and I don’t have to see anything I don’t want revealed.
