This is a lovely top, and especially in that color. It's nice to know about the drafting of the sleeve (although somewhat disappointing). I know what you mean, they FEEL so much better if the back and front armholes are not symmetrical. I can also relate to all those LITTLE BITTY lines being so close on the different sizes of the various pattern pieces. :o)) I remember making some Jalie jeans, looking at those lines and thinking, they've got to be kidding! :o))

The top looks good on you but you are the one who has to like it; a muslin might help tweak the fitting issues but if the pattern is not drafted to your taste it might be worth it to find an easier pattern to work with. If you don't tell, no one will know--it is a great color.

This is such a beautiful shirt, Sigrid! I love the colour and the fit on you. Casual, but smart at the same time. Lovely!

Though you may not REALLY like it, it looks great on you, and the colour is wonderful. Like your idea of combining with another sleeve pattern. As someone else suggested, try a muslin, and tweak it to suit you. It really is a nice patterns over-all, although I certainly agree on the armhole and sleeve issues.

I think your son is right -- it looks good on you, and the details are so precisely done, in spite of the lightweight fabric. I think you'll get compliments if you wear it around town.

Your shirt looks great and is beautifully sewn...but you are absolutely correct they have to feel comfortable. You have made some lovely shirts...that fit all these needs.

This is lovely and looks nice on you, but I agree with you that the drafting details can turn you on a pattern just because there are so many well drafted patterns out there with the sharp details you want. I'm the same way but to me that's what really sets it apart. Thanks for your review on this as I thought of making this up.

This is one of my favorite colors! Thanks for the helpful review. I just purchased this pattern and may need a FBA based on what you wrote.

I'm sorry the fit is not as good as you would like, but it does look nice anyway!
