I’ve had my eye on the JJ blouse pattern since I joined Burda a couple of months ago and I can finally say that I’ve used it. This dress was created using the basic pattern with a few alterations:
I lengthened it to make it a dress rather than a blouse.
I decided to not add the ruffles this time around, although I’d love to try another time with them.
Instead of putting a band on the arm, I added elastic to give it a ruffled look.
The fabric I used is a cotton and silk mix which was a bit of a splurge, but it feels so nice! And I love the pattern on the fabric! And I finally made a dress that isn’t blue! It’s all so exciting!
Cotton and silk fabric, and buttons.
