I've been adding short fitted dolman sleeves to that sort of squarish blouse lately, and it might be something you want to try with this? You're right, a very loose sleeve on a rather fitted style isn't all that straightforward because it changes the feeling of the whole thing. Not saying that I don't very much like your result, which is totally gorgeous :-).

Thank your for the detailed review. Your blouse is lovely. I really like how you've altered the sleeve and appreciate your sharing. I love this blouse but I've stayed away because I too, have bat wings for upper arms. I'll have to give this alteration a try.

Thank you for all the nice comments! You inspire me to try this pattern again & try to perfect the bodice area :) I really do like the new sleeves, and of course the collar. Would love to see the results of someone else trying this :)

Both versions of your blouse are lovely. You've inspired me to order the pattern!

Beautiful blouse, I like your sleeves better than the pattern sleeves.

I love this blouse, the collar and sleeves are very flattering.

Lovely blouse, the collar is the real attraction for me.

The blouse looks great on you. Flattering, easy going, and elegant.

It's beautiful! I have this pattern too but haven't decided on a fabric yet.

A lovely blouse. Your version of the sleeve is nicer than the original.
