Is it a Pussy Bow or a Blouse Bow?

I’m not sure why these are called Pussy Bows, and blouse bow sounds old timey. Neck scarf bow? I’m really not sure what to call it.

I inherited some of my grandmother’s vintage clothes and one of her blouses had this amazing detachable neck bow. I took it apart and drafted a pattern from it exactly as it was and it turned out pretty awesome.

And when I made it in pink it totally reminded me of the latest Gucci looks that are feminine but somehow tough at the same time. It’s a pretty great accessory for a punch of color.

I’ve made up a bunch of these bows in red, black and pink and you can pick one up at  Cut and Sewn on Etsy.

And if you really want to DIY your own blouse pussy Gucci whatever bow you can get my downloadable PDF pattern with complete how to instructions here:
