So Does This Make Me Look Fat?

The latest Burda WOF has a nifty twist top in the plus section (#124). I thought I’d try it with some buttermilk from Emmaonesock. As I traced it, I realized that the seriously nipped in waist would never do, so I traced the waist shaping from my standby tee. Here’s the result:

This is the pulled down version — the darts are too high, but buttermilk is really stretchy!

The dart problem can be fixed (probably — it’s a really funky pattern piece), but I’m not happy with the top. It seems kinda frumpy (dare I say WalMart-y?), and I can’t decide whether it’s the fabric, the pattern, the combination or that I’m just feeling lumpy this week. What do you think?
