Easy Peasy Tee

I've been having a fun time knitting this little sweater for my youngest granddaughter. She's 15 now, has a 34" bust but is as skinny as a rail otherwise...
The problem I'm forseeing in the future is that the neckline is going to be too big for her... and probably a little too revealing...
I'd like to add something to the neckline which was just a long tail cast on (my first time and I love it!).
Could I add a few more rows to it and do some decreasing so it will fit her better?
Thanks
p.s. hopefully the blog address will work...

You should be able to pick up sts in the cast on and maybe work some rows of ribbing which will pull in the neckline and extend it. If you need more than an inch or so you may want to work some stockinette with decreases and then a few rows of ribbing.
It certainly is a darling T. Glad you're having fun with it.

If the one I found the link to is what you're working on I agree that you should be able to work some rounds to make the neckline smaller after the rest is done. I'm not sure you'll like the result. It could significantly alter the style. I would consider starting with the smallest size to make the neckline smaller and then enlarge for the bust. It could be done with increases to actually make the garment larger all around and then decrease them back out or it could be done with short rows to add fullness in the front where it's needed and the back would then have the same fit as intended in the original pattern. For someone "skinny as a rail" it's easy to make the rest of the garment too loose.

In both knitting and sewing I've coped with this problem for many, many years. What both crafts have in common IME is that trying to make the neckline smaller is much more difficult than trying to make the bust larger.

Just my thoughts FWIW. YMMV and I expect it will. I think it's just as cute as can be and hope it turns out to your liking.

I won't be able to try it on her so measurements are going to have to do...
Thanks to you all for taking the trouble to answer my question...
I appreciate it so much!
