This is the first piece I’ve ever made from a pattern. I also learned a few new techniques in the process.
I’ve been wanting a bow tie blouse for a while now. So, when I saw the JJ pattern, I knew It was what I’d been looking for. I left the ruffles out and altered the collar slightly so it could be tied.
I have to agree with the reviews regarding the instructions for this pattern. They weren’t very clear at all. I pretty much winged it and looked at the finished versions when I got stuck. Other than that, I LOVE this pattern. The pieces fit together beautifully and I will be using this pattern to make jackets and dresses in the future.
Linen (I think it’s linen) with denim accents
