This project explains how we used the JJ pattern to make an avant-garde dirndl-inspired top, which appeared in the German version of Burda Moden. Making and altering patterns takes a fair amount of trial and error, unless you are a natural. As we make patterns, we always make a mock-up in muslin to test if we like the changes. The following steps show you how to slash and spread a sleeve, change a neckline, and make a funny ruffle. These are just ideas, and we can’t wait to see what you come up with!
