Deep neckline theory
Instructor : Savitha
Skill Level : Beginners 00:09:08
You must have encountered problems of the shoulder of the dress slipping or falling off. This happens when both necklines are deep and there is no support. To avoid this we need to make some adjustments in the shoulder measurement and this class explains the changes to be done in your pattern.

Hi, guess I answered this under your question in Bundle course.
yes, the shoulder will shift for both back and front if both necklines are deep and then you draw the curve as usual for back.
Good day to you.
You will need to reduce from your 1/2 shoulder measurement [not 7.5"]. Going forward kindly post your question below the bundle course that you have enrolled for. It is easier to followup.
This was explained in the tutorial. When you reduce the shoulder in lieu of the deep neckline, you shift the chestline up. Also when you measure the armhole curves if you find it bigger than actual, you shift the chest line up to reduce the curve.
What is the 15" you are referring to?
Deep neckline theory can be applied for kurits/dresses, for saree blouse it is slightly different. Kindly post your concern about the blouse in the Q & A below the katori blouse class, will sure clarify.
Then you may take 3/4" from midpoint to draw the front armhole curve.
How much have you reduced from your half shoulder measurement ?
Yes, it can be applied for sleeveless Kurtis too. Also you may please refer to our class on "Sleeveless yoke kurti".
You are welcome.
When doing deep necklines at back and front, the garment will not have much support at the shoulder and will expand and that is the reason the shoulder is reduced. The armhole is adjusted because as you bring the armround line inwards due to lesser shoulder slope, the line length increase. So we move it slightly up.
Sorry did not clearly understand your query. When you reduce the shoulder in lieu of deep neckline, it is done for both front and back.
Hi, Our free tutorial on 'Deep neckline theory' may be applied for Kurtis/dresses when both necklines are deep. For saree blouses we have explained in the First class of the saree blouse course that is Class1-Choli blouse.
Hi, thanks for your appreciative words.
This deep neckline theory is applicable when both the necklines are deep. If your front neckline is normal depth and back is high, then you don't need to apply this theory, but as the back neck deepens for every 1" depth you may reduce 1/4" from the 1/2 shoulder measurement.
