The pattern McCall’s 6601 stood out to me because of the contrast bow blouse. I liked the idea of a busy print with a solid bow framing the face. The print fabric is a synthetic challis; which has a stiffer hand than a silk or poly sateen. Due to the stiffer hand the challis behaved much better during construction. The solid contrast is a cotton broadcloth. Even cut on the bias for the bow the fabric does not have much drape. Thus a stiff bow at the neck, I like the effect but commonly the bow neck blouse is desired with a loose draped bow like the pattern envelope photos in which a silk or poly sateen with wonderful drape is utilized.
