McCall's 6650 - Animal Print Pussy Bow Blouse/Top

I have always lovde the "Pussy Bow".  It is just something about it that is almost regal to me.  I've been holding this pattern for months and I knew immediately when I saw it I wanted to make it.  I had cut out a beautiful yellow rayon fabric with a paisley contrasting fabric for the bow. But I was perusing another blog, and spotted a Pussy Bow Blouse, and I knew this pattern would be perfect.  I wanted something soft but with an edge, and so I decided to use an animal print sweater knit I had in my stash with contrasting black bow and cuffs.

I made a few modifications:  omitted the placard in the back and added contrasting cuffs.  I love how it came out, and I can see myself with a couple more of these.  What do you guys think?



 
Happy Sewing!

  2. I have this pattern and have debated making it because of the tie - which is my favorite part! Do you find that it irritates your neck?
