Same pattern, take four! I eliminated the pockets for smooth side lines, raised both the back neckline and the front, quite a bit (Joan Halloway never reveals much skin!), added 3/4 length sleeves, and added vertical bust darts on the front, above the waistline. Because it is more form-fitting, I also added a center back zipper, to help get in and out.
I also lengthened and deepened the back darts, they are almost 11" in length, total, and I lifted the point of the dart 2" so that it would fall in the curve of my back.
This process of proper fit is never ending…
