I used the very popular JJ pattern for the first time, and now see why it is. It is a great basic shirt pattern.
I wasn’t very interested in a ruffle blouse until I saw a pic from an old Anthropologie catalog (see last photo) and then I was inspired!
I changed the ruffles by making 8cm wide circular ruffles and then gathering them, also omitted the sleeves and instead used a bias binding. Because these were very large circular ruffles, it would have been hard to baby hem them, so instead I did a very delicate zigzag stitch and trimmed the edges.
I really want to wear this like the model with a high waist before deciding if the ruffles are too much for my liking. Unfortunately I didn’t bring any high waisted bottoms with me to Peru, so I’ll have to wait until I make something new!
