My grandmother gave me this shirt of hers. It is a very nice soft silky viscose (rayon) fabric(It is completely black, don't know what is happening with Bloggers uploading tool here).
But the neckline!
I removed all but 1 cm of the smock.
Took the shirt in slightly at the sides.
And made a single pleat at the center back to gather and raise the neckline.
I really really like it now, an instant wardrobe favourite.
