Flowers and stripes JJ

This JJ was my trial run of this pattern.

The frills have been roll hemmed on my overlocker with a contrasting thread and I decided to use a bit of a decorative stitch on some of the seams and the hem.

I didn’t really like the finish on the sleeves so I changed them a bit – just simplified really.

Unfortunately this blouse is a bit too big for me, so I may end up taking in the side seams and adding a tie to bring the back in.

I was actually quite please with the outcome, even though it is too big. I was very happy to actually see the project all the way through to the end with a good finish, instead of throwing the towel in when I got frustrated with it! :)

Material Notes

I have used 3 different fabrics as I didn’t have enough of the main one that I wanted to use. All fabrics have been sitting in my stash for probably 10 yrs so I figured that if it didn’t work out, I wouldn’t miss them! Fabrics are actually stretch, which probably accounts for the blouse not fitting too well. Buttons from my stash.

    I like how you’ve used the 2 differeent fabrics, they work well together. I’m a big fan of miss-matching. And the black stick on the ruffles works well. Nice job!

    I like it! Enough with that less is more! MORE is more! I have an unfinshed JJ with a little bit of the same concept, though not as cool colors as yours!
