I think your version fits and looks better than the pattern illustration, frankly-I love the sleeves and trim especially.

Thank you for all your nice comments. The trim is binding because I accidentally sewed the collar together before inserting the piping and I didn't want to undo it.

Very nice. I like the gingham and the extra touches you added with the binding (or is it piping?) and the darker buttons. It fits well too. Thanks for bringing the pattern to my attention - it's a bit different.

Very smart blouse, almost jacket like, so would be lovely for smart casual occasions.

Great fit and the collar treatment adds just the right touch.

I agree, the piping is a good idea. Now you can make a few more nice fitting blouses for summer.

Good job on the fit - looks very nice. I also like the piping trim on the sleeves and collar.
