As soon as I saw the Library Blouse pattern from Tadah Patterns pop up in my newsfeed, I knew I had to have it. It includes design features that I love…pleats, little puff sleeves and a Peter Pan collar. I didn’t even need to think hard on what fabric to use.
This is a beautiful voile called Lunada Bay in Coral, and although I bought mine from my local Spotlight it is available online as well. (Hawthorne Threads)
The pattern was very easy to follow and the blouse came together quite easily. I did add some top stitching around the top of the yoke to help hold the collar down a little better, but other than that, I followed the pattern precisely.
And what a beautiful result.
I can already see many more of these appearing in Emily’s wardrobe, considering the number of options included in the pattern…sleeveless, short or long sleeves, blouse or dress and collar or no collar.
