I absolutely love the Sew Over It Pussybow Blouse sewing pattern. It’s such a great to wear on multiple occasions. It’s my go-to blouse for wearing around the office! Granted, I am not going in to the office as of writing this review (COVID – yay), but it’s a great work blouse nonetheless!
I made Version 1 of this blouse back in February 2020 using a fabric my mom bought me in Thailand. It’s great, so I decided to make myself another one in Version 2!
I decided to make this blouse again when I was gifted a Liberty Fabrics Tana Cotton Lawn from Minerva. As a Minerva Maker, I have the opportunity to sew with such amazing fabrics! This fabric was no exception. I have been wanting to sew with Liberty Fabrics for a while now, so I jumped at the opportunity! You can check out my Minerva profile here to see all my past makes.
The Sew Over It Pussybow Blouse
I’m a sucker for bows and ruffles, and a pussybow blouse is always a timeless piece to wear. I love that the Sew Over It London pattern offers two different options. The first is a keyhole neckline where the bow sits at the base of the neck. The second is a v-neck option where the bow sits at the bottom of the V.
My Sewing Process
Sizing, Adjustments, and Customization
For my Pussybow Blouse, I chose to sew version 2, which is the v-neck option. I sewed version 1 previously, so I thought I’d mix things up.
I ended up sewing a size 10. My measurements are 34-29-38, and the pattern measurements are 35-28-38. I looked at the finished garment measurements of 38-36.5-43, and the ease was just the right amount for this blouse for me to sew a size 10
For adjustments, I only shortened the sleeve by 3 inches.
As I mentioned previously, I sewed this blouse with a Liberty Fabrics Tana Cotton Lawn from Minerva. I had various other options to choose from, but I thought that a smaller floral print with a darker color palette would make for a great blouse to wear in the office or at work.
The sewing process went pretty smoothly. Since I am already familiar with this pattern from making it earlier in the year, the only new step was sewing the v-neck option. I like the fact that the Sew Over It Pussybow Blouse pattern utilizes hand sewing techniques to finish the back neck and sleeve cuffs. It just looks so much cleaner that way!
Final Results of my Sew Over It Pussybow Blouse
Overall, I am super happy again with this Sew Over It Pussybow Blouse sewing pattern and how my blouse turned out! The instructions are so easy to follow. This blouse looks amazing in the Liberty Fabrics Tana Cotton Lawn as well! I can’t wait to wear this blouse more often when I am back in the office regularly.
