Vogue 1224

As promised, here is last night's disaster, which looks a little bit better in the light of day than it did in the mirror last night.
 Maybe if I got rid of the giant bow...
I'm just not feeling this at all.  Such a disappointment after my fabric excitement.  The pattern is Vogue 1224, which I don't blame for my failure here.  I know others have had great success with this pattern.  I think I just don't like the gathered neckline and big sleeves.  It's just not me, especially when paired with the cute print. 

If there was any doubt in my  mind that this will not be worn, it was laid to rest when I showed Hubs. 
me: "This may be the ugliest thing I've ever made."
him: "Well, it's NOT... pretty..."

He just calls 'em as he sees 'em.  I'm not sure what I'm going to do with this.  The frontrunner right now is cut strips and make a breezey scarf.  Any suggestions?

Gosh, I don't think it looks THAT bad. The color is pretty, but I'm not sure that it suits your skin tone.

Something about the casings at neckline and waist just make it look too peasant-blousish, perhaps?

I agree with Sandysewin. The colour is pretty: I can't see the bow too well and I think this top is flattering.
It might be that you're not used to this style or the top needs to be paired with pants/jeans?

I'm sorry your DH said that about your creation. There is nothing more disappointing than no appreciation for your efforts.

I agree with the other comments. Try jeans maybe? I think it would make a great scarf if it doesn't pair well with jeans.
