Step #1 - Draw a straight or slightly curved line from the bottom of the Center Front corner to the top of the strap attachment corner [red line]. This is your new neckline.

Step #2 - Cut and pivot through the bust point mark [blue line]. Overlap the new neckline by 10mm (approx 3/8”) and smooth out neckline. You may need to increase/decrease the overlap depending on your breast shape. Decrease for Full on Top and Increase for Shallow ore Full on Bottom shape. This creates a bit of tension on the neckline and eliminates any gaping.

That’s it! There’s no need to add/subtract seam allowance as its already included. If any other alterations are needed, (BCD grading, projection increase, knit modification, etc) complete the other alterations first before adding the deep-V to minimize work.
