Vintage Sewing

Sassy Librarian Blouse

August 5, 2012

I completed the Sassy Librarian Blouse by Christine Haynes on  This was a fun blouse to make.  I chose the sleeveless version with the pintuck detailing and contrasting bow.

The fabric I chose was a quilting cotton.  To go along with the vintage feel of the blouse I used some vintage buttons I got for a dollar at an antique store over the past weekend.

The front of the blouse has bust darts and release pleats.  The back also has release pleats.  I like the way it conforms to your curves and doesn’t look boxy.  The only alterations I had to make was to the back neck.  I added a 1 inch dart on each side of the CB to eliminate the gape I had in the neckline.

  1. Great Job! I really like your version. I bought this class as well and haven’t found the material I like enough to want to make it yet. I love the sleeveless version as well!
