We need more photos of the back to evaluate. It looks here like the back is pulling to the front at the sides, which is a consequence of mixing the sizes. Would it be too tight if you used the 14 below the amseye in the back? Changes in the shoulder area mean changes in the armsceye and sleeve. It looks like you could use whichever set of lines would set the sleeve in lower in the armhole. The armhole itself looks as if it may be tight in the pit? Great fit through the chest with no gaposis though! I think the style is just fine!! I always thought I couldn't wear bias till I made one and found that when it fits correctly, there is nothing wrong with the style.

This looks great on you. The proportions for the upper half of the top are perfect. I wouldn't lenghten it much, I think the lowest part of the front curve is about right. Overall a lovely outfit.
