This top was way too balloony with the band at the bottom, so I ended up cutting off an inch or so (more in the front and the back) and sewing the band back on. It’s not great now, but it’s better.
Plus, I added cuffs to the sleeves that are meant to look like the cuffs on the JJ blouse. It’s much cuter than elastic!
