    Well done! The bias tape adds a very nice touch. I wouldn’t have thought that the JJ pattern would work on bigger bust sizes, but you made it work. You made a very good choice making small ruffles, chosing fabric and fitting the shirt.

    You have a similar bodytype to me. I thought the ruffles might pull too much attention to the bussom but it looks just fine on you.

    I like your JJ blouse – the fabric is great and the black bias tape makes it very unique! And I love the idea of making a matching hair-band!
