JJ Blues

From the start of the Burdastyle sew along I intended to make 2 blouses. The first one I already showed to you. Now I finished the second one – it was made much more like the original. I first found the idea of a plain blue version boring so I to make the ruffles different colour, but I felt like a clown. So I just left the colours on the collar. Sorry for the threads on the photo – didn’t notice them on time.
p.s. I just saw after I posted it that at once 41 people, that never saw it, favourited it. So amusing – not really the democratic way though…

Material Notes

I actually don’t know, but I think it is a polyester something…





JJ, Burdastyle

    Ceregana, I finally ended up tacking my ruffles down. I got tired of them sticking straight out. Thought it looked funny. Otherwise I love my JJ blouse and I like your pleated ruffles alot. Maybe I’ll try that if I ever get around to making another one.

    JJ – this version was a UFO for me too – cause I had to flatten this ruffles and it took time… I am afraid I have to flatten them every time I wash it…

    I like your version! I have to say…every time I see this top I wonder why I have not sewn the buttonholes yet. It has been UFO for a month!

    Great Job. I love the ruffles, they looked almost pleated, a lot better job than what I did! I really enjoy the blue collar, the buttons and even finishing touch with the skinny belt
