Who doesn’t love a sailor eh? I made this top with some blue linen and an adapted JJ pattern. I’ve used the sleeves from another pattern – they’re absolutely perfect and I have decided that all the sleeves I ever make will be made with this pattern! I self-drafted the sailor collar, thus continuing my foray into the world of make-your-own trims. I think I’m going to try a plain old flat collar next.
