Bright Red JJ

Added Jul 14, 2008

Geelong, Australia






I made my JJ during sewing lessons. I asked my teacher to help alter the pattern to achieve a better fit. We made it smaller up the top and bigger around the hips (like my figure) but went a bit too far. However it doesn’t matter ‘cos I’m pregnant and it suits my rapidly expanding waist line! I will probably take it in a bit when I get my figure back.

Material Notes

Red fabric found at the op shop, I’m pretty sure its synthetic.

    Thanks everyone. I have to agree, red is my colour I wore a red wedding dress, the one in my picture.

    Your color choice was great and also your work. Congratulations on your soon-to-be new baby. :o)

    Nice JJ. I like the contrast with the ruffles and buttons. Red is your colour.
