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.
