Thanks everyone for the kind comments! I'm currently trying to decide if it would be easier to find/buy/alter a new pattern (designed to be more fitted) or figure out how to alter this one to zip up the side and be more fitted around the waist.

Nice job on your first dart rotation! I've just started playing around with these myself, and I think they really help alleviate the Gigantidart syndrome with a larger FBA. If you could nip this top in a bit more in the waist like you've mentioned I think it would make this top even more flattering.

Congratulations on your first bust dart rotation, and what a wonderful result you've gotten! In fact, you've achieved a really superb bodice fit overall in your lovely top. The color is very striking, too, and I look forward to seeing your next version, should you decide to add a zipper and fit the bodice more closely beneath your bust. Your skills are increasing swiftly. Very lovely, Lily
