    Thank you for posting! I want to add gathers to a T-shirt for my daughter and couldnt figure out where to end the slash lines.

    I have been searching for this technique for ages, thank you so much. Just about to embark on my 2nd JJ shirt too, am braving making it in chiffon – it’s been cut out for 2 weeks now…..

    Thanks J.J., your method would add that extra fullness at the bust and waist without turning a pattern into a muumuu. Keep the how-to’s coming. You are saving sewers a lot of time and grief. Cordially, Nehmah

    Oh JJ, these look great (as usual). Your how to is well explained too — you make it look so simple. I’ll have to have a go at this. As soon as I’ve finished all the projects I’ve got on the go. Thank you.

    thanks! I love it when you show how to alter patterns like this (and the leg of mutton top). I find it’s really easy to understand when I see it and then I can start learning how to pimp my own patterns!! :)
