Upstate, South C...
12/2011 blouse with bow #119 . I was curious about the tall sizing. I’m in between, not super tall but taller than average. The construction was quick despite the front pattern piece looking so foreign to me. Once I sewed the first seam, I could see how it all fit together. I could not, however, find the tie extension piece on the pattern sheet (I traced from the magazine) so this is the length of the bow without it. It doesn’t reach around and tie in the back like the line drawings show. I used a drapey rayon so my bow is a little floppy. Not completely sold on the silhouette, especially from the side, but there is definitely something fun about it. The neckline is super deep, which I knew it would be, so it’s hastily basted closed about four inches in the photos of me wearing it. It’s unaltered on the dressform. I’m debating whether I should properly raise the neckline or just wear it with a camisole underneath.
Rayon? I think. It was thrifted.
