I made this pattern as well and agree with the fit. In theory this should have been a great pattern but is way too tight for the sizing shown. Knowing from another review that the neck was wide, I made what I thought were the proper adjustments. However, not being so adept at raglan sleeves, didn't do such a great job and ended up putting little tucks at the shoulder seams and hiding with buttons to make it look deliberate. This looked OK in the end. However, it is tight under the arms so I added little gussets to help - this was moderately successful. Since I really like the fabric I purchased for this top, I wear it but am on the fence as to whether or not to sew again.

I like the drawings of StyleArc's patterns, but I think they have some sizing issues - sorry this didn't work for you!
