Description

I made this JJ variation from the fabric of an old men’s shirt. I changed the collar: extending it so that it could be tied into a pussy-bow or cravate. I left off the ruffles, and didn’t put the buttons on the sleeves. The fabric is a red&blue weave, creating the illusion of purple – pretty difficult to photograph.

Material Notes

Old cotton shirt from a charity shop.

    I usually don’t like bow ties, but your blouse looks adorable with this trim.

    I love your version of JJ. It’s simple yet feminine. I don’t think your status should be ‘novice’ any longer!
