Q&A with Nancy de Farras

K Lee 2Strings asked:
Very pretty blouse! I love that some of the older, more feminine styles are coming back.
Nancy de Farras answered:
I enjoyed making it but I dont know if it is in style though. I think it is very old fashioned. Just the same, it fits me well and i have learned to make peter pan collar ang stuff like that. thanks for the comment. Is is quite feminine isnt it?
shazdove asked:
I love the blouse, you have inspired me to have a go at making myself one. I have done the sassy librarian class but havent done a blouse yet, love the style of yours
Nancy de Farras answered:

Scheri Manson asked:
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.
Nancy de Farras answered:
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.
