Sassy Librarian Blouse »
InstructionsI thought the pattern ran large. When you take your measurements, if the sizing chart size seems large to you, I'd go with your regular size. Make sure to do a muslin - I had a lot of fitting issues.
Type of item: Clothing
Style: Retro / Vintage
What was your inspiration?
I haven't made a garment in a long time and wanted to brush up on my fitting and sewing skills. BTW - I don 't know why my pictures are showing up sideways!
What are you most proud of?
The fit and the way I finished the inside. I used french seams throughout and made contrasting bias tape to finish the hems on the bottom of the blouse and the sleeves.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Don't skip the muslin. This isn't a fitting class, so you might have to go to outside resources if you have fitting issues.
