Cut a square of fabric which is larger than the neck hole, and cut a circle
in the square which is the same size and shape as the neck hole. Pin the
square to the *outside* of the tunic so that the holes line up. Sew around
the circle fairly close to the edge. Then, turn the square flap into
the inside of the tunic; iron it in place and, if you want, top stitch,
embroider, or sew some trim around the neckline so that the flap doesn't
flip back to the outside of the tunic.
This method works also with necks where you've got both a circular hole
for the neck + a slit down the front, just make the slit in your square
of fabric as well.
Hope this explanation makes sense!
