That seam placement reminds me of an old favorite style from way back in the 60s. The 1960s, not the 1860s, wise guys.... There were a number of patterns then that had that kind of princess seam placement, but there was also a bust dart that started at that seam, and pointed to the full part of the bust. In front, not on the side.... I think it's called panel princess, or something like that. Anyhow...if you could modify the pattern to include that little dart, you might wind up with a favorite new style. Here's Lekala's version, with no side seams: http://www.lekala.co/women-sewing-patterns/shirts/blouse-with-bow-on-sleeve.html

Thank you Karla, that's a great idea and seems a LOT easier than trying to move the princess seam over with all of the shaping.
