|This is the pattern, not the much more interesting way the camera make it appear in the other photos.|
but not the boxy shape.

Tasia then released the Oakridge pattern. It's nice having someone who designs for the pear-shaped among us.
I traced out my size placed, found the blouse, opened up the side seams, and placed the pattern pieces over the existing front and back. After cutting the blouse to the new shape, I resewed the side seams. I didn't change the hem or the collar.
I didn't move the dart, which may explain the drag lines toward my waist even tho' the fit under my arms is better.
