Sassy Librarian Blouse

with Christine Haynes
Demure, but alluring. Sophisticated, yet sweet and easy to make! Christine Haynes shows you how to take one top in eight pretty directions.

Sweet, buttoned-up and decidedly girly, Christine's blouse designs are fresh and unique. You'll learn how to piece together an exclusive class pattern and create two flattering variations. Then, see how to mix and match sleeves, collar and bodice designs to make them your own! Discover how to include a curved collar, pintucks, buttonholes, interfacing, sleeve insertion, and bust and back darts to your blouse. For the sewists who are ready to add tops to their repertoire, Christine gives you step-by-step guidance as well as skills you can use in all your future projects!
