Pattern Puzzle: Fixing a cowl neckline

In the forum, we’ve been discussing how to correct the cowl neckline of a specific pattern to fit. Lisa said

The facing seemed too bulky to be sewn into the armscye. The pattern was made for knits and wovens, front cut on the bias. I used a synthetic knit I had lying around. I have to wear a shirt under it since it gaps too much in the front.

Here is a picture of the pattern piece below

And here’s pictures of Lisa wearing it. For modesty, she’s draped the fullest part of the cowl so you can’t see her cleavage because it’s pretty low.

So there you have it. Prescriptions please. Of course I’ve prepared what I think is the appropriate solution but am eagerly waiting to see yours.
