Perlemorsgenser mother of pearl

I made myself a new alpaca pullover. I used the kids pattern perlemorsgenser/mother of pearl pullover as inspiration and made myself some instructions. I used 12 skeins, 600 gram, 2004 meters of Drops Alpaca held double. My cria cardigan was knit in this yarn and it was my favorite until I ruined it in the wash, so I think this will be loved and well used, coming this autumn. I really like the decorative cable and bobbles making the raglan shape the sides. I think it gives interest without being fussy and I think it will blend well in with all my separates. This kind of pullover doesn’t really work with dresses, it makes me feel like a big walking blob and I don’t like to feel like a blob. It will however be perfect with those trousers I’m planning to make. The colour is a mix of undyed natural shades of tan alpaca wool which gives depth to the colour and it will look amazing with the navy blue trousers I’m planning to make.

I have been building up a lot of expectations about this sweater since I decided to make it 6 months ago, it took some time to decide on a colour and it doesn’t completely live up to my expectations, mostly because I see now that raglan isn’t very flattering on me. I see a lot of people wearing raglan, but how can I wear raglan well? I have broad shoulders and this is the result. My beloved has narrow shoulders and look just as misshaped in it?

Or is it the length that is the problem, maybe I should lengthen it a few cm.
