What materials did you use? Classy Librarian Blouse Pattern

I loved the classy librarian blouse, and unfortunately I had fitting concerns, so I enrolled in Fast Track Fitting with Joi and was able to do a torso adjustment with 2 days of watching her class. I needed to increase my waist to a 30 from a 34 waist pattern. Increasing my torso 4 inches worked for my shape. Joi provides a lot of adjustment variations. I must admit that I was apprehensive at first and considered another class but after thinking about her instructions I jumped in and did it. I made a muslin of the shirt and it is a perfect fit. I also made some modifications to the shirt, like making a regular placket without facing and removing all darts, but I did put darts at the front top of the shirt. I have only been sewing for 2 months, so I am happy I was able to complete this project. The pictures are front and back adjustments.
