One Tip for a Well Fitted Sweater

I went for this sweater pattern from Lionbrand because of the crisscross belt. It looked like it might fit and flatter better. Pretty cool how this pattern actually started with the belt and you worked down from it for the bottom section, then top up for the upper part. I think overall it knits up pretty fast for a sweater. However, I think I got the proportions incorrect. I should've done a shorter upper part and a longer lower section. Would've flattered a bit more. I still need to block it. Not sure if it's a public wearable piece... Agh... sigh.
