Description

Another upcycled old shirt this time to create a pussy-bow blouse. The design is loosely based on Burda Style pattern 7521. I had to make a few adjustments as their wasn’t quite enough fabric: the bow is smaller, the fit is tighter and there are a set of buttons and a pocket on the back.

    You know, I love that the buttons are on the back. It’s very interesting! I saw this and I immediately told my husbands to hand over his shirts… I’m gonna be making this
