Ok, I realize that we've been hitting Sew Over It pretty hard the past few months, and we will be taking a break soon in upcoming boxes. But, come on, you must admit that they have such great choices. The Pussy Bow blouse is no exception, a beautiful, classic design that will always be in style. With two different style options you can choose between a v-neck version or a keyhole opening. The blouse features full-length sleeves with a cuff, a slightly dropped shoulder and a loose-fitting dartless bodice. Stylish and versatile, it’s perfect for the office but can be dressed up for a night out. (And it will go perfectly with either the trousers or the pencil skirts you've already made).

The challenge of this blouse pattern is mastering of drapey, fluid fabrics, but the reward is getting the easy fit and the beautiful feel of the finished blouse. For fabrics, we've chosen silks and viscoses with bold colors and designs that are sure to show off the simple styling.

Skill Level: Intermediate

What you should know (or desire to learn): Sewing with slippery fabrics, setting a sleeve.

Fabric Options:  

  • Super Soft Deep Ultramarine Viscose Woven - Do you remember in middle school when everyone was obsessed with the cerulean crayon? No, just me? No matter. But if you're familiar with the crayon, you'll realize that this fabric is the color embodied. Vibrant and striking, the color shows off an incredibly soft hand and a waterfall drape. The finished blouse will glide over your shoulders and make you feel ever so posh. A no-brainer of a choice. 
  • Liberty Of London Green/Blue Floral Stretch Cotton Poplin -  Those familiar with Liberty of London know their unmatched quality and unique patterns. We've chosen one of their cotton poplins with an almost illusory pattern of hand drawn floral images in lime green and baby blue. Soft and feminine, a blouse made with this fabric will become your go-to when you want to dress up any outfit.
  • Green Paisley Floral Silk Crepe de Chine - Looking for a statement blouse? Look no further than this luxurious crepe de chine in a gorgeous emerald green. Smooth and cool to the touch, this crepe has a unique mix of floral and paisley horizontal rows that will look amazing on this blouse pattern. Plus, the silk just feels amazing against the skin. Just remember to break out a scrap piece of muslin when you cut to keep it from slipping off your table.

Also in this box: matching thread, two shirt buttons, and one sewing machine needle. All you have to provide is the sewing machine.
