Beautiful Nancy. If you are concerned about the style it is VERY it! The Vintage/Retro movement has been growing and many of the big four pattern companies have started to make designs such as your beautiful blouses with pin tucks and peter pan collar. Both features which I LOVE.

Thanks for the encouragement Scheri. I saw your peter pan collared sassy librarian blouse and it really inspired me. You are always so inspiring. I dont know how to sew it right though. Had a hard time with collars without facing because as you know I just follow what we have been taught here. Will have to email you if I have questions. They are having a sale right now at sewing patterns. Do check it out. Thanks again.
