Grr... vintage patterns!

Well, I'm not ready to show my finished product, but I do have a "scene of the crime" shot to share. I say crime because I didn't follow the pattern exactly, and I realized something about vintage patterns. Although the pictures look very cool, the cuts and lines aren't necessarily cool to wear today. I don't really like my top very much :( but I keep trying to get inspired by it. I keep thinking, if I just embellish it somehow it will be great. I think my unhappiness with this top is a result of my novice sewing abilities, and a pattern that is not really suited for my figure. Oh well, I shall keep at it, I'm not ready to give up just yet.
