Nothing wrong with a little retro librarian style, right?
I made this blouse and skirt independently from another and was surprised how well they go together.
The blouse is the same style as this one here
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=416558.0
but with puffy short sleeves instead of long straight ones.
The skirt is a simple pencil skirt pattern for which I drafted a high scalloped waistband and optional straps. They make the skirt more versatile as it can be worn as a pencil skirt or pinafore this way.
