I had been picturing a blouse like this that I wanted to make when I found this pattern, so I saved myself having to draft a pattern. It’s very comfortable, so I am happy with it. Where the sleeve seams meet the side seams comes down fairly low on my side, so I would alter that if I made this again (or else just go down a size). Also, it’s a bit difficult to get it on over my head, even with all the buttons undone. Then again, I have a fairly big head… I did alter the sleeve length and width by narrowing and straightening the sleeve seams from the top, cropping them, and making an elastic casing.
