The Sassy Librarian Blouse

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I am really proud of the precision in crafting each technique in the blouse - especially the tucks, collar work, understitiching, button hole placement, topstitching, pressing - basically I am proud of everything I did in these blouses. I was really thrilled to find tutorials online and to master doing a small bust adjustment that worked out beautifully. The blouse fit fine without the adjustment, but I knew that taking out a little fabric in the bust area would further improve the fit. I will post photos of all versions as I get them uploaded. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take the lessons one step at a time. Follow Christine's directions precisely for a perfect blouse. I watched the whole course before ever starting. I have made 4 of these blouses, and every time I listened to Christine's lessons as I was constructing - even for the 4th blouse. These techniques I have applied to many other projects. Marking tucks and darts as Christine does has removed the dread of doing projects with darts and tucks etc. I loathe tracing paper and a tracing wheel, so using a water soluble marking pencil and the pin point marking method is a breeze. My tucks and darts turned out perfectly.
