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

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

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.
