Thank you, Rosebee, and all! I tweaked the seams, after they had been sewn on the 5/8" line, by tracing a line farther into the fabric (starting on the 5/8" seam and curving into the fabric, back to the 5/8" seam at the end) and sewed it there to pull the seam in. I started about 1 1/2" below the armhole. I hope that makes sense!

How did you tweak the princess seams? I'm working on one of the cross-over views of the same pattern, and having the same problem! I LOVE the fabric you've used for this top! It looks amazing!

This looks great. Love that embroidered cotton - it really adds to the looks of the blouse.

This top is just lovely. I really like the way you have cut the front to fit the embroidered motifs of the fabric - this makes the garment look really upmarket!
