Sewing Vogue pattern V8710

I love the lines of this Katherine Tilton pattern. I consider this first garment a wearable muslin. As is always the case with me, the pattern standard bust point is two inches too high. Figuring out how to lower the bust point on this princess seam was a challenge.
I have altered the pattern and am working on a second garment. The second version will be made of two way stretch fabric. The version below is only stretch on the cross grain, hence the difficulty setting in the sleeves.

My first attempt at this pattern.
