Hi... I have a top with a similar neck to this dress. Basically, you
do the neckline wide as you want it, the sew a wide rectangle round
the neck edge. You sew it on inside out, so that when you fold it
down, it's the right way. Then, I think, you gather the sides of the
neck piece, and voila. OK, sorry about the fuzzy explanation.
