No puppies were harmed in the making of this shirt.  Some polyester beasts gave their all, however.

I saw this fabric at Hancocks and decided I needed myself a big bow blouse made out of it.  It's Simplicity 3684 again (I did it here before: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=353582.msg4131055#msg4131055), but I cut out the correct smaller size this time, put the shoulders in the correct place, and picked a different sleeve.  The bow is just a very long piece of the same fabric (45" + 45" by 4") that I put a rolled hem on (geez, that's an annoyingly picky foot to use).  I just tuck it under the collar and tie a bow in it just where I start buttoning the shirt.

So this is one of those projects that I was super excited to start and then started questioning half-way through and nearly gave up on.  I mean, it's dalmatian print.  Looking at the fabric for too long made me question my sanity.  Couple that with the hair pulling annoyance of sewing slippery fabric and I nearly threw the whole thing out.  I'm glad I stuck with it though because I LOVE it (and shockingly so does my husband).  Without the bow it's just kind of a crazy shirt, but the bow really pulls it together and it feels like a Look.

Next, it needs a black pencil skirt.   Grin

Don't worry, it's just a plastic boob.
