Description

I altered the JJ pattern by cropping the pattern pieces at the waist, and pintucking the center front piece instead of doing ruffles. I also made fluttery sleeves by just gathering the raw end of moon shaped pieces.

Material Notes

I got this fabric at an antique mall, and also the buttons. I am trying to start actually using the buttons I am hoarding…
