I think it needs a very, very thin, drapey sort of fabric, or it won't fall right. Sari silk was a poor choice, in retrospect.

I made this in muslin to see how it worked before using any good fabric. I was very disappointed. It doesn't look at all like the drawing on the envelope.

It wouldn't help the general rotund bag-shape of the bottom half, though; and the yoke is just still a little too tight, even with my modification (I should, in retrospect, have added another inch i think). I think I will be best off donating it to a thrift shop, in the hope that it will be found by someone it fits. Or I could give it to my tall, slender adolescent daughter, of course, and it will look great on her, as everything does, so it's hardly a fair test! :)

I see what you mean...lovely fabric, & the back view is nice. Maybe a scarf draped to loop across the upper chest would help.
