What's with the weird bend radius on bend w/ custom sketch?

Hey everyone,

 

See part attached. Super simple sheet metal part.

What I'm trying to achieve is this: I want to model the result of having a tapered piece of sheet metal with two 90deg bends in it.

 

Is there a better way to go about this?

SW does not seem to like my approach. As you can see, the radii are very weird looking in the 3D, and the resulting flat pattern has kinks in it. See screenshot.

 

I'm not usually that fussy about the small details, but the part will be manufactured from the 3D and is intended to be a highly aesthetic part.

 

Thanks!
