Pussy Bow Blouse Add-on Pack PDF Sewing Pattern

From: £6.50

Clear
  

The Pussy Bow Blouse is one of the first patterns we ever released and she’s been going strong ever since. Now it’s time to put a new twist on this Sew Over It classic.

Use this Add-on Pack to add a button placket to the Pussy Bow Blouse, as well as a new front piece that beautifully gathers into a yoke. We’ve also given you an oversized tie for a more dramatic bow, and new instructions on how to create a wider sleeve with an elasticated hem. If you prefer, you can also add the tie and cuffed sleeves from the original pattern to your new yoked button-up.

The Add-on Pack includes the following pattern pieces, plus new instructions on how to adapt the original pattern to create the new versions:

  • gathered front bodice piece
  • front yoke piece
  • button placket piece
  • oversized tie piece

PLEASE NOTE: The Pussy Bow Blouse Add-on Pack is not a complete pattern. You will need a copy of the Pussy Bow Blouse pattern in order to make the new versions.

Because of the button placket and yoke, the Add-on Pack is aimed at Intermediate sewists. However, when sewn in a stable fabric like a cotton lawn, we believe it can also be tackled by Confident Beginners.

Sewing Level
The Pussy Bow Blouse Add-on Pack is aimed at Intermediate sewists, but made in a stable fabric, like cotton lawn, it could be tackled by a Confident Beginner.

Fabric Suggestions
Light to medium weight woven fabrics with lots of drape, such as rayon, viscose, crepe de chine, sandwashed silk, crepe, or a light cotton lawn. You will also need 6 x 8-12mm buttons, and 6mm elastic for version 1+ and 8 x 8-12mm buttons for version 2+.

Sizing & Fabric Requirements
The Pussy Bow Blouse and Add-on Pack are sized between sizes UK 6-30, split into two different blocks: sizes 6-20 (B cup) and sizes 18-30 (D cup). See the chart for details on fabric requirements.

Like all our patterns, the sizes are nested to make it easier to grade between the sizes, depending on your measurements.

What will I receive?
The downloadable pattern file contains:

  • printable pattern (in both tiled print-at-home and copyshop format) in all sizes
  • fully-illustrated printable instruction booklet
  • copyshop permission letter

The Add-on pattern is either 18 A4/US letter pages or 1 A0 copyshop page (sizes 6-20), or 21 A4/US letter pages, or 1 A0 copyshop page (size 18-30).

If you purchase the PDF Pattern + Copyshop Printing option, you will also receive your pattern printed on A0 paper in the post. Find out more about our PDF Printing Service here.

So what is a PDF pattern?
A PDF pattern is a downloadable pattern that you print yourself at home on A4 or US letter paper. Alternatively you can choose to have the copyshop files printed on large A0 paper, and posted to you at home. If you’re using the A4 or US letter options, simply download, print at home, tape together and let the sewing begin! When you print the pattern, print at 100% (you might have to uncheck the scale box). Print page 1 first, the square should measure 10cm x 10cm.
