McCall's 6650 Silk bowtie neck blouse

McCall's 6650
A tie neck sleeveless blouse I made in a silk charmeuse print.
Total cost: About seven dollars.
A black background with brownish feathers on it that I found in the garment district for an astonishing five dollars a yard.
I still have 21/2 yards left and am syill deciding what I will use it for.
This tops looks great under my black Chanel style boucle coat.
 This is a very easy pattern to sew together and I made it in a size 10 instead of the recommended size 12. I usually make most patterns one to two sizes than recommended for my size for them to fit how I like.
I have been wanting a bow tie blouse since last season and this sleeveless version is casual but can be dressed up with a jacket over it.

I'm actually taking this top apart and removing a little length from the bottom from and tightening up the pleats on the band after seeing these photos.
Then it should be perfect.
I would definitely make this again and since I bought this at the Joann 99 cent pattern sale it was a great bargain!
