Bow Neck Blouse Sewalong

Hello Retro Sewists! I’d like to invite you all to join me for a sewalong. I’m inviting everyone to sew a blouse or dress with a bow on it during the month of November. (I’m announcing it now so you have enough time to plan!). Bows have been found on blouse necks through the decades, and I’d love for you bring your love of retro sewing to the sewalong.

I’ve created a Flickr group where we can all share inspiration and progress. I’d love it if you would join the Flickr group now and upload photos of bow-neck blouses you’ve already sewn (and links to your blog post or pattern info) to serve as sources of inspiration. As you finish your sewalong blouses, you can add them there too! We can share progress on Twitter and Instagram once we start planning and sewing using #BNBsewalong.

Head over to for more details and buttons you can add to your blog!

  • Ooohh! I am SO in!

  • I know what one I have been waiting to sew.

    • Glad to hear it! And can’t wait to see your finished make!

  • Wonderful! I’ve been wanting a bow-neck blouse for a while now, but never seemed to fit it into the queue. Time to change that I think!

  • What a great idea, I love your ‘through the ages’ collage! Unfortunately, I don’t have the time to join you in November, but I do have the 60s pattern which I’m dying to get around to one day soon! Can’t wait to see what you all make!

  • I’ve been looking for the motivation to make Gertie’s Bow Blouse. I might have to go for this one!
