What are you most proud of? That I made samples before I started with the buttonholes on the blouse. That saved a lot of tears, time and fabric.... and its fun to have that little sample to be proud of. I think I have to frame it!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make a muslin ( I made a muslin before I made the first sassy librarian blouse and I am so happy that I did. I had a lot of work with the fitting and adjustments of the pattern before I made the blouse. Now I can do the blouse again and know it will fit) Try out the details on small samples before you start. That will save a lot of time when you make the final blouse. Follow Christines lessons and add her good tips and advices to your skills.

Your blouse is lovely. Thank you for showing your hand work and the finish on the raw edges under the collar. It's so helpful to see those details.

Thank You Hobo Soup, are you making the blouse? I made two of them with the collar. Im planning to sew a new one without the collar.

I am planning to make a couple of the Sassy blouses Eva, once I sit still long enough to watch the entire collection of class videos. I've been studying all the comments and the creative changes made by other seamstresses and I plan to make my initial blouse out of muslin (a first for me) with no collar, a plain front and cuffs on the sleeves. The bust is always my challenge too, so we'll see how it turns out.

Good luck! You can see under my project: "In progress The sassy librarian blouse" that I had some problems with the fit. The blouse is baggy in my first edition. I made a muslin and worked with it hard to get a fit that I liked.

What a nice idea to stitch the collar like this! Great inspiration for me. Fits to this seersucker fabric greatly. Like the buttons very much too. Thanks for sharing this good idea.

Thank you Innerwave, glad you liked it. A lot of work but it was fun to do it.
