Thanks for your review, the quest for your holy grail - the woven tee which flatters continues.

Schammy - you and I have similar shapes (and ages!) I agree with Andi and others: go back to the original pattern and select your size by your high bust (underarm) measurement and then do a classic Full Bust Adjustment. That way the shoulders will fit better. I'm not familiar with this pattern, but that is what I do to get a garment like this to fit my D-cup girls. You have to make sure you add that extra to the bottom. I bet you'll have a better fit. I'd give it a try as many seem to have success with this pattern.

Actually I don't think you're that far off on a good fit. Your ss are swinging forward and there's some puddling in the middle back. If you take a tuck in the back to nothing at the ss it will pull the ss back into position and eliminate the tenting that you've got in the front. Then rotate the French dart into a bust dart and I think you'd have a much better fit.

I agree with you on this one. My scout versions have the very same problems and I am quite small busted. It's amazing how similar out scout tees look on our very different body types!

Your fabric is really pretty. Thanks for posting your review. I have the opposite fitting issue to you but I enjoy sharing your journey and always learn something from these types of reviews and the comments posted by the PR community. Thanks!

Why don't you take some better photos which show more and post this in fitting woes? I think you will get some suggestions on how to fix this.

If you add a front dart it will give more room for your bust and it will fit much better.

I probably would have the same results. My suggestion would be to make a little larger dart and rotate it into the shoulder seam and turn it into shirring or small tucks.

I agree with KMQ, a horizontal bust dart will help your fit. If that works, and you try it again, you will have to add to the bottom of the front piece the same amount that you too up in the dart.

I suggest you rotate the french dart into a horizontal side seam dart. It will had more length to the center front. I'm sure your results would be better.

Thank you for sharing your pattern conclusions.

Too bad it didn't work out. FWIW, I found the fit to be not so good either. I chose to make mine in a knit fabric which I much prefer. I have been following the topic on the forums about this tee and will try a bias cut tee.
