J J blouse

Brooklyn, New Yo...






My first blouse! It was really fun, but I found the directions to be somewhat confusing, so I made some of it up along the way. I took out one row of ruffles because I was feeling sort of clownish. I like the way it turned out, but I need to add another button to the bottom of it, so my stomach doesn’t hang out!

Material Notes

cotton from purl, my new favorite fabric store

    Wow…I really like it!!! I just print this blouse and like you I found some part of the instructions are hard to understand. I only sew the back until now and it seems to be really big? I chose the 38 size, is this to big? Normally I wear medium size!! Thanks to help me before I finish it! You did it so you know better then me!

    Nice fabric, I think it was a great decision to take out one row of ruffles.

    Well done! Your version is the best so far, and I’ve loved all of them. I’m making this at the moment too, and I’m going to follow the way you did your ruffles. I was planning on putting another button on too, you have confirmed my suspicions!

    your JJ blouse is beautiful! I added also extra buttons cause I don´t want that my stomach doesn´t hang out, too ;P!

    Everytime I see a JJ, I put a ticker on my todo list next to it. I have yet to see a bad one which is a testament to the pattern. Great job on the JJ blouse.

    This looks so great! Very nice fabric and your ruffles are so neat! I’m making a JJ Blouse right now and mine are a little bit messy ;) Enero: I folded the ruffles!

    Way cute. I added another button to mine too. Good idea with the ruffles, I opted for only one row which ended up fairly sheik. I am wondering if you could answer a question of mine though- I am seeing some people who folded the ruffles lengthwise, and some who did not fold them in half. I think you are one who did not fold them in half, correct?
