What Went Wrong: Oy. First I thought it was just that my fabric didn’t have enough stretch. The neckband was basically standing upright. So I unpicked it and added knit bias binding. What I discovered was that it wasn’t solely a problem with my fabric, but the raglan sleeve pulls and the neckline gapes. Any ideas on how to fix this? Maybe I need more space in the shoulder and then pinch out the excess at the seams?
Next Steps: I’m letting this one go. I don’t have a solution for the fit of the shoulders and neckline, so until then I’ll set this pattern aside.
