It took me a while to start sewing this blouse, but once I started, the project itself was pretty fast. It has a stand up collar that is comfortable to wear even with all the buttons closed, it looks of open as well. The collar and the sleeve bands are made in a very similar way, so it got sewn faster then I had imagined.

The fabric was just enough for a belt. Unfortunately I didn’t have any bias room for the ruffles, but in the end I like it simple like this.

Material Notes

silk, 6 small buttons

    I love the simplicity of it (i like the ruffles on the other jj blouses too, but…) yet the sophistication of it. two thumbs up.
