Everybody in the sewing universe it seems has made a pussy bow blouse, I have always resisted as I thought they were just not me, but lately I have warmed to the pussy bow.
I used the Lottie Pussy Bow Blouse pattern from Sew Simple, a freebie with Love Sewing magazine a couple of years ago and a charity shop fabric find
I cut a size 14 down to a 12 around the neck. I had to cut the neck tie in two pieces and add a seam allowance and join them together as I didn’t have enough fabric left otherwise. I used French seams for a neat finish. I didn’t read the instruction until I got to the stage of adding the neck tie, where if you follow the instructions you have a raw edge, I really didn’t want a untidy neck, so I enclosed the neck edge inside the neck tie, just like sewing a collar.
It’s a great fit, straight out of the envelope. And I love it!!
I am already planning a Christmas one and a sleeveless one in Liberty Lawn.
Have you ever changed your mind about a pattern and ended up loving it?
