Early fall in shades of green - Vogue 1275

vogue 1275
I have been very busy lately at work and with my son so sewing didn't got much time from me. In the meantime the fall have hit us and I have to take my projects in the new directions. I had a lot of flipping around patterns thinking what to do next. I settled  for Vogue 1275 and I was aiming of the tops for the fall to add to my wardrobe.

I am not 100% sure what I did wrong ( maybe the fabric, maybe the fit, maybe just poor sewing skills ) but it didn't turned out as great as in my imaginations. I feel like the gatherings in the front panel pop a little to much at the bust area and shape of the neck line is not my favorite. I tried to change it a little and I used binding all around it but is not how I wanted it. Also the fabric is not very stretchy and because of the that the sleeve is a bit to tight.
In the end is not really that bad and I will still wear it but probably not that much since I am not in love with the result. And that is a shape because I really liked this knit with this wonderful shades of green and a silky look ( the fabric looks a lot better in reality then the photos ).

I used this fabric for a gift project earlier this year and I am happy to have a little more room in my fabric stash closet even if not much.
