The neckline is very wide - not me at all! The shoulders were about 2" down from my shoulder line - not clear on the pattern that the shoulders were dropped as far as that.
I haven't taken a photo of me wearing the blouse because I just don't want to. It's that bad.
After all that time I spent in the sewing room cutting out, embellishing the front with fancy stitches, all that pinning and sewing and pressing - I'm miffed it didn't turn out!
I remember now why I stopped dressmaking for myself - because I can't find patterns that fit me. If they fit over the bust, they don't fit at the shoulders. If they fit at the shoulders, they won't fasten over the bust. And, always, the sleeves are too tight for me. Always.
I'm going to have to think about what to sew next. But, in the meantime, I'll probably cut out some patchwork pieces. No worries about how big my boobs or how fat my arms are when I'm cutting out wee strips and squares! ;o)
