So I made this using the JJ pattern as my base pattern. I just cut out one size larger then I regularly am, and made the overall length of all the body pieces and the sleeves longer. I sewed an elastic band to the waist area when the body pieces were sewn together. I wanted to make the sleeves shorter but I’ll do that next time and maybe a lighter color then the dark blue i chose.
sorry about the bad lighting ^_^llll
I was thinking of adding the ruffles as well but maybe I’ll do that later
