That's still a lovely blouse that can be worn as office wear. Your friend is lucky indeed!

Very pretty! I do like the striped cuffs as an alternative to the contrast -- I think it looks a little lighter and more summery that way. The chevrons are lovely too!

Very pretty. I really like the different directions the stripes take.

I love the chevron in the back! I'm enjoying sewing these as well, it's very freeing in a way to have to think about how it would have been styled in 1912 vs 2012. That chevron is great!
