On-Line Workshops:



Available world-wide, check out my on-line class, The Sassy Librarian Blouse, on Craftsy! The Sassy Librarian Blouse is a 1950's-1960's inspired top, with vintage details that can be mixed and matched to either view 1 or view 2. 

View 1 features a pointed flat collar and short sleeves. Both views have bust darts, release pleats on the front and back for shaping, a boatneck opening, and buttons up the front. 

View 2 features a tab and bow at the neck, sleeveless armholes with contrast band, and pin tucks down the front on either side of the button placket. 

Perfect for the advanced beginner, this class will teach you how to sew a set-in sleeve, bust darts, release pleats, understitching, hemming, buttonholes, and more! Get interaction with me, the instructor, as well as the 7,500+ enrolled students from around the world. I designed this pattern exclusively for Craftsy, so enroll today and get your own Sassy Librarian Blouse!
