As Promised…

As promised, here’s the Pussy Bow Blouse on the dressform. After having some time to think about it, I’ve come to following conclusions:

  1. I like the arms. They are softly gathered at the cuff and the sleeve head. They fall perfectly at the top of my forearm.
  2. The body does nothing for my curves. Other than the side darts, the torso is extremely masculine. The side is a straight cut with no shaping and it seems mismatched with the arms.
  3. I should have made the pussy bow. The masculine body and the feminine arms wouldn’t seem so mismatched with it. It’s like the dude’s rug – it would have really tied to blouse together.
  4. It’s white. Seriously. I started looking at my closet and it turns out, other than white undershirts, I don’t own all-white garments (edit: that’s a lie. I made this over the summer and love it! What gives?) I think my subconscious has known all along that white isn’t flattering to my skin tone. Molly may be on to something when she suggested dyeing the blouse.
