Ok, what's it made out of? Can you post a link to a picture of it?

Was it knitted bottom-up or top-down? If bottom-up, is the cast-off too tight?

Does your DD have a notably large head?

Ok, does it look/feel tight? Which bit is sticking?

I'd uncastoff, then re cast on. And maybe block it to loosen up the neck. Do you know how to do that?

If you use one needle a size, or even two sizes bigger than you have used it is easier to cast off loosely. I can't quite see, did you pick up sts round the neck to put the collar bit on? if so, you will probably need to undo the whole collar and unpick the cast off and redo on the neck as well.
It's a lovely jumper, did you do it that colour?

You need to find the end of your casting off and carefully unpick it. If you have just picked up stitches from a stitch holder you will be alright to undo the casting of and then do it again. It is very fidgety to find the little tag where you cast of and broke the thread but when you have found that and undone it, you can pick up what comes loose stitch by stitch on the needle you used. Don't be tempted to just tug at it and unravel the lot
Sorry to disappoint you but redheads shrink worse than other heads, it's the stubbornness in them.
