Based on JJ blouse redrafted by AnaJan.
Used pintucks instead of pleats which were a bit bulky and not as neat if you can’t get the pleats even. I prefer the subtle look of the ticks.
Sleeves were redrafted to roll up cuffs.
This pattern is a size 38 but would fit someone who wears a size 40-42. I took out excess fabric at the darts by a total of 2inches. Next time will sew the original pattern without the recommended 5/8" S.A.
Lightweight sky blue cotton with small white pindots.
