Back when the spring catalogs first came out ( probably about December,
wouldn't you think?), I saw a shirt, tank top and pants that I loved.
Except.  I was certain that the tank top was cut much too low.
    Hot dog!  They've reduced the pieces to less than half-price but the
tank top is still too HootchieMama exhibitionist for me.  SO.  =)   I've
ordered the tank top in a size too big, will take the tank apart and re-cut
it.  I'm expecting that if I just lifted the neckline at the shoulders that
then the armholes would be miserable.  I'll report back and let you know if
this evil plan works.  Polly

I'n waiting to find out if this will work for you.  I've simetimes
considered buying the correct size and make my own "insert" to raise the
neckline.

Re: Problem solved?
Barbara, I've tried that.  I was enjoying a salvage/fire sale and managed to
buy two identical lowcut tees.  Used one to make an inset for the other.
I'm not a beginner and I think I did everything - warp, woof and stretch -
just right.  Failed.
    IF I ever need another inset, and that's a big IF, I'll just make a
straight panel to attach from bra strap to bra strap.  The cover will stap
put when you (or anything else) moves.  Polly
