Pussy Bow Blouse by Sew Over It

I needed a top to wear to a friends birthday party and the Sew Over It Pussy Bow Blouse fit the bill perfectly! A beautiful classic design, ideal for tucking into trousers and skirts.  A very cute pattern, I can see lots more in my wardrobe in the future.

I am a pdf girl, I don’t mind sticking the pages together, it is all part of the creative process for me. Saying that I did get this one printed by NetPrinter, they are an amazing company who offer A0 sewing pattern printing at a avery reasonable price. I do trace my patterns too, just incase I need a different size.  I don’t seem to be able to trace the tissue paper patterns so I generally stick to Indie pattern pdf’s.

The fabric I used is a black viscose with cream swallows from The Textile Centre which feels lovely, I did go back to try and buy some more but sadly it had sold out.  The fabric did shrink a bit when washed but that is to be expected. I chose the version with the lower neck line. The instructions were step by step with illustrations to help you, I did read certain parts over a few times just to make sure I was doing everything right as I made the blouse the day I was going to the party! Nothing like leaving it to the last minute, right?

I took my time as it had to be right, I think I gathered one sleeve more than the other, only slightly though so it’s not noticeable.  The cuffs were a little fiddly but nothing I couldn’t handle, the only thing was I didn’t have any little black buttons.  I just left them off, no one noticed and it didn’t affect the look of the top.  It was only me that knew!  I am happy with the blouse and it withstood a night of partying and Prosecco .

Confession time, I still haven’t put any buttons on! I will do it….. one day.
