JJ Blouse gone Long and Western

Added Apr 2, 2008

Decatur, Georgia...






Love, Love, Loved this piece. I just made the JJ blouse into a western dress. I made the ruffles longer and placed them closer together. Oh, also added a ruffle to the collar.

Material Notes

Really thin cotton gingam? and pearl snaps.





Burdastyle and JJ

    Love this dress, you did a great job. i really like what you did with the ruffles, moving them together on the front piece and adding one at the collar, great details. Love the buttons too!

    I never would have thought to make this into a dress or add those buttons. They really do add a Western look. This is ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC!!! Great job. :)
