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.

It's so cool to see that you made it up with striped fabric!! It looks fantastic. Thanks so much for your review.

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!

Beautiful blouse. I do like the way the stripes show off the design. I'm intrigued enough that I might try the pattern--thanks for a very helpful review.
