JJ variation

Added Feb 23, 2008

I took part at the sew along for February and I intended to do 2 JJs. Since I actually don’t want to have two same blouses this is my variation of the blouse. The other one will be much nearer to the original. I will describe the changes I made on my blog step by step- and you can see some of them in the sew along thread in the forum. I might say I made it more fitted since I felt it was too wide for me – but this is just a matter of taste. I made it longer than the original too.

Material Notes

cotton sation – it is very soft and has a subtle shine to it.





burdastyle and JJ!

    Love your variation! I was thinking about making another JJ and I think I might follow your lead with the collar alteration. Well done – it looks fab on you! Tauken
