Based on Carolyn's advice, I'll try taking off the sleeves and just adding a binding to the armhole. I hadn't appreciated how much that might help the fit. The drape in front is nice (looks better than the other straight-grain top I made from the same fabric). I can wear it under cardi or jacket.

maybe take the sleeves off by what Carolyn says? then you'd redeem the sewing time at least.

Beautiful top and although I am sorry you had afitting issue with the sleeves it also vindicates me - I love this pattern with no sleeves - put the sleeve in and presto - big fitting issue with tight feeling across the back shoulders. Though it was just me but if it happens to you Sue then now I don't feel so bad
