The contrast of the angle of the stripes on the collar with the stripes on the front of the blouse is quite striking!

Wow, this is a really pretty blouse. I love how the stripes on the collar lay on the stripes of the bodice. I am glad that you mentioned that this was the smaller collar. The wider one may flatter a larger figure. Now, I covet this blouse in a lovely stripe. Thanks for the review, I may try those corners yet.

Very inspiring. The stripes really make this blouse look special. I have noticed that striped blouses are really in this year, but most have a menswear look. This is a much more feminine style.

I have yet to make this blouse despite owning it for years. I love your choice of stripes, really makes the blouse.

I also switched the button placement on the sleeve after I wore it one time.

I just bought a striped shirtweight cotton and was thinking of using it for this pattern, for exactly the same reason as you! Great to see how nice it turned out - thanks!
