It looks like you've aced the shoulder fit. The v-neck, collar and notched sleeves give this blouse a tailored look, great for the office. If you can find a fabric that won't resent being ruffled, you can make a more girly version, too. It sure is nice having a pattern that can be sewn up in a number of different styles. Keep this one!

I love how your shirt turned out--the sleeves look great. This pattern is on my to-sew list.

Your modified sleeves look just fine. The color is just beautiful.

This is very fetching. Looks too hard for me, but you sure did a good job on it. -LornaKismet (Lorna A.)

Great review and your blouse looks wonderful. As for the serger rolled (or narrow edging) I find that using Sulky Solvy as a stabilizer when doing this finish on sheer fabric solves the problem of stitches falling off - I have had so much success with this that I have no hesitation is recommending it to other sewers.
