Does anyone have this book?  If you do, what are your thoughts because I'm thinking of purchasing it.  I need an inexpensive patternmaking how to book.  Any suggestions?  Thanks.

M6112 question

While sewing McCalls 6112, I had an issue,"how do I stabilize the neck area?"  It just kept stretching as I was sewing.  The pattern directions said to sew it as 5/8 narrow hem.  When I wore it, by the end of the day it was showing a little shoulder on one side.  Does anyone have any remedies to this type of issue. How do you keep necklines on knits from stretching?
