Finally got to JJ!

Added Jan 25, 2010

Portland, Oregon...






I finally made a JJ, my first blouse! I had never done anything with a collar or even with sleeves before! I absolutely adore how it turned out. I used some vintage pin dot fabric from my Grandmother’s stash, which is very sheer and lightweight. It’ll be wonderful in spring and summer over a camisole.

I was surprised how smoothly it came together, I only made a few mistakes which were easily fixed, this was a great pattern to work with.

Material Notes

blue on white pin dot cotton, blue plastic buttons




Garment Type
Business, Casual, Classic

    LOVE the colored buttons! Great idea! Can’t wait to get started on my first blouse! This would look great with my high waisted vintage 50’s skirt! :)

    The fabric and buttons matches very well. I am at the same point, have never worked on collar, and sleeves. I just printed out JJ, so I will give it a shot!

    Excellent job, especially for your first collar + sleeves project! I was planing to make a JJ myself, but I’m little woried about ruffles since I never done them before.. Yours turn out very well, really love the outcome.

      I found that using the really light weight cotton kept it nicely casual, and kept the ruffles soft. I was keen to avoid the dreaded “frilly” look.

    very nice, i like the brighter buttons. I had never considered making a JJ but yours is so cute I’m going to have to try it now.
