Shame this didn't work for you. Good to know that the design of this top is fussy (meaning fussy on who it will look good on). I can't say that it looks bad in the pictures, but you can't always tell. (Lorna - thanks for adding your experience w/ the princess seams as well.)

This is very interesting. I always thought princess seams would be flattering, but apparently, such is not the case. Thanks for sharing your experience.

Princess lines can be funny. The ones that look good on my fuller figure are ones that are narrower in width for the CF pieces with all the width on the back, and shoulder line more so than armhole ... and the fabrics are so touchy with the effect as well!

It's such a shame when you work hard on something and you just can't like the results. You're more patient than I am - I'd have probably never given it a second chance. Thanks for the review, though.

Princess lines are deceiving...they are supposed to look good on my figure type..BUT ....the one and only time I made up a beautiful light wool dress with princess husband , who never gives negative comments on the articles I sew, had some about that dress...I also had issues with it...some of the same ones you commented on. I am sorry the pattern didn't work out for you..but appreciate the review.

too bad it didn't work out. I agree that certain princess lines can be unflattering.

SueV, Isn't it frustrating and heartbreaking when you have your mind set on loving a pattern enough to make it twice and it just doesn't look good on you!?? This has happened to me too! I am impressed that you took the time and energy to write this review on top of all that. Thank you for this helpful review.
