So the Sencha is a cute top Colette Sencha but I really just don't think it'd be flattering on my larger frame with the folds in the front at the stomach area.
I LOVE, absolutely love the size and look of the keyhole and ties at the top of that version, but have been having trouble finding other shirts that really delivers that.
Simplicity 2927 + 2756, and New Look 6009 have some similarities, but I figured it couldn't hurt to throw this question out there since I am not satisfied with those really either.

You could just replace the dart-tucks on the Sencha to true darts, or eliminate the darts entirely and do all the shaping in the side seams (especially if you have a bit of a tummy so you don't need a lot of waist shaping).

Maybe Vogue 1045 or Vogue 1170 could be worked to suit?

Vogue 1170 is very similar to the New Look 6009. I think I will end up getting one of those at some point, the neckline does look kind of fun. Laura, thank you for those suggestions, I'm still not a very experienced sewer so it didn't even occur to me that I could experiment like that.

I agree with Laura, just leave the tucks/darts off and adjust to whatever you need to fit you
