13 by 13 - The Craftsy Sassy Librarian Blouse

The Sassy Librarian Blouse Class went live on Craftsy this week and I absolutely had to join. It is a 1950's inspired button up blouse with options for a collar, bow, front tucks, short sleeves or sleeveless options.

I have decided to make view 1 with the collar and sleeves. I chose a red fabric with white pin dots. I am still trying to decide if I am going to make a matching collar or a contrasting white one. Thoughts?

So far I have printed my pattern, taped it together and transferred everything in my size onto tracing paper. I have also washed and preshrunk my fabric. I ordered my cotton fusible interfacing and it should arrive next week. I don't plan to rush this project so I am not to worried about it. 

This is also one of my 13 by 13 goals. I am using a Craftsy class!


  1. Or do both! Try figuring out how to make detachable collar so you can use either the matching or contrast whenever you feel like it, or without!

  2. Wow... I hadn't even thought of that. My brain must be on vacation. Thanks a bunch!
