Pussy Bow Blouse Mashup

Pussy Bow Blouse I wanted to create a Pussy Bow Blouse reminiscent of the one the model is wearing on the pattern envelope of the Cashmerette Meriam pants below. Cashmerette Miriam Trousers  I made a couple of pairs of the Meriam pants for the Sewing Pattern Review 2022 Pants contest and wanted a garment to go with them.  This blouse is a mash up of the Vernon Shirt from Cashmerette and this Style pattern circa 1975 Style blouse pattern.   Style 1064 Vernon Shirt  Style 1064 Blouse has front button fastening and long bias set-in sleeves gathered into buttoned cuffs. Bust, back and shoulder darts. View 1 has collar. View 2 has bias neck tie. View 3 has stand collar, purchased belt and optional lace trim.  Vernon by Cashmerette  Reclaim the button-up with the Vernon Shirt!

Use drapey fabrics for a flowy look or firmer fabrics for a more structured result.  I used Neon leopard printed rayon from Spotlight. It has a very slight stretch.  I had to place my pattern pieces carefully to print match the design across the front and around my dress. Sizing 0-

Cashmerette - Brattle Top - 2211

Cashmerette - Brattle Top The Brattle Top is a simple tee with a twist! The Brattle is a curve-friendly t-shirt with a faced neckline and an inventive twist that adds visual interest without adding bulk. Opt for the Brattle's short sleeves or swap in any of the sleeves from the Concord T-Shirt or Carlyle T-Shirt patterns for even more possibilities. Don't tie yourself up  in knots trying to figure out what to wear: from brunch to the gym, the Brattle is your new go-to top!

For my PJ top: I used a light weight very stretchy bamboo jersey in mint and a lilac for the front and back with a matching waffle
