While I was in the mode of alterations I dug out a top that has pockets on the sides near the underarms for carrying materials out of sight. I use mine for wallet, cash, etc. when traveling.
The problem was that the neckline was so high that it rested up around the throat. Not only was it uncomfortable to wear but I have no tops with necklines that high so it came off like I was wearing a high-neck white t-shirt under everything - NOT a good look.
I fixed this by putting the garment on, topping it with my lowest neckline top, and marking the opening with a Sharpie marker. Then I took it off and made a line 1/4 inch outside that marked line.
The new neckline was then enclosed in fold-over elastic which was sewn with a tripple-stitch zig-zag.
The last step was to take a tuck at the end of the V-neck.
This is the result:
The garment is body-hugging so the ripple on the neckline disappears when it is being worn.
