Thanks for the review - so helpful! Your shirt is cute but I understand your frustration.

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.

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
