The back chevron is pretty easy to sew. I pull the bottom layer towards me slightly. How much depends on the fabric but this way the bottom layer will pull at the same rate as top and the prints will match. No pins needed.

I think it's really cute- not pirate-y at all. I would love to sew stripes (chevron) like this! Impressive!

I think that the stripes look great (on the front and on the back). The top looks good on you.

I love tops that make a statement and yours says 'very stylish'. Love it.

I love the stripes! And the back looks really cool. Well done! To get rid of the gaping, you could sew the ties a little higher on the front, so it pulls the front back in, but I can't see the gape in the photo.

The back chevron looks great in the stripes. I agree that using a softer stretchier/drapier fabric would help the fit but I am a fan of stripes and I think they go well with this top.... no sign of a circus performer at all!
