nice looking shirt, how do you find the fit to be?
I am a size 22 in rtw, it fits me well in the upper part and it is flowy around my hips. I am not sure if i like the way it looks with the angled hem. I feel like it emphasizes my wide hips.

thanks for letting me know, I also have "wide hips" so I always wonder how various styles will suit them.

Pretty top!  I love how it is longer in back too - great for when I am sitting at my desk, bending, etc. and don't have the back of the top easing up.

Wondering about the hit-the-hips issue (my biggest problem area)... could more of a sloped angle help with that?  Keep the front length where it is, but lengthen/steepen the slope where it transitions from front to sides?  My line of thought is to (not just lengthen the back part but) create a slightly more vertical line, similar to how princess cut patterns draw the eye up and down.
