Polka Dot JJ

Added Mar 7, 2011

Portsmouth, Unit...






I’ve finally finished my first attempt at the popular JJ Blouse pattern. It’s quite an easy thing to make, however I found the ruffles a little tedious after a while, but I put that down to me being a little impatient! I’ve had this fabric laying around for a while & thought it would be perfect for this pattern.
The only thing that I’m a little annoyed about is that I didn’t have enough fabric to make the sleeves, so I had to add some small capped sleeves instead.

    The ruffles look lovely and the fabric suits the garment really well.
