Sorry this didn't work out well for you. I'm sure in the correct size, without the trim, it would look great on you.

Well, you know, it doesn't look that bad :-). Fit issues and all. The only thing I find jarring is the binding at the neck. Could you maybe hack it off and just serge the edge? Or even leave it plain? I think the design suffers from the over-contrast visually, not to mention the drape..

Thank you all for your support on this...Fuzzy, ...I didn't know what it was that bothered me about the darkness of the bias tape with this...but you are right...it is a bit over the top (so to speak)contrast wise....it can only help the drape...staytuned for further pics
