Wellington, New ...
I have named this JJ for my BSC friend Gill’s comment when saw this blouse and frills in it’s early stages at one of our meets, I can see what she meant, see last image (which is actually a lettuce leaf sea slug, but you get the idea) hehe :)
This is my first attempt at the JJ blouse and I have to admit that I finished this and the accompanying Kasia skirt ages ago but I love them so much I have worn them to work at least once each week since I completed them so they are always in the wash when I remember that I haven’t posted them yet! Also we have just been though two weekends in a row of over 42 degrees Celsius, so the last thing I felt like playing was dress-up but here they finally are.
I finished the ruffles differently from the instructions, I instead gave them a narrow hem and carefully top stitched them and I think they turned out really good even if it is a bit more fiddly and time-consuming it’s worth the effort.
I really love the stand up collar and in general this is a great pattern to use as a base for other shirt modifications, I highly recommend this pattern.
