Jonny with JJ

Added Jul 28, 2008

by nelliethemer...

Hamilton, New Ze...






I found this material and fell in love with it. Also I’m on a mission to inject more pattern into my life. I chose to make the Jonny dress but modified with the JJ blouse sleeves. (Yup, being winter I couldn’t quite bring myself to remove my stockings and boots, can’t wait for summer and some cute sandals!) I think I might need to accessorise with a light brown belt or something just to cut the pattern a bit.

Material Notes

Cotton with a green/brown print, green shell buttons

    Aww, thats so pretty! I love the fabric, I don’t know why, but I just can’t find any nice fabric in any of the fabric shops here. We have an ikea, but i keep thinking that all the stuff would look better on cushions etc. lol. Anyway, really really well done. xx

    Love the fabric! Good idea to combine the two patterns – the puffier sleeves balance out the fullness in the skirt.

    Its so nice. The fabric and buttons are beautiful. I made the JJ blouse with the Jonny sleeve. I think I prefer the JJ sleeve on the Jonny dress as you’ve done.
