    I read your blog with the issues you had.

    It looks as though the centre peice comes up too high on the arm area. If you took an inch of fabric away from the sleeve sloping edge of the patterned fabric (all the way round under the arm and the back sloping edge) it would solve that issue as well as making the neckline less sloppy.

    Also I think perhaps if you did the top all the same fabric it would look better too.

    Think of it as an excellent toile :)

      Thanks for your feedback! I have decided I don’t care for this style on me though, so it’s not worth taking teh time to try and fix it :-)
