Long Blouse(JJ variation)

Added Feb 16, 2009

So I made this using the JJ pattern as my base pattern. I just cut out one size larger then I regularly am, and made the overall length of all the body pieces and the sleeves longer. I sewed an elastic band to the waist area when the body pieces were sewn together. I wanted to make the sleeves shorter but I’ll do that next time and maybe a lighter color then the dark blue i chose.

sorry about the bad lighting ^_^llll

I was thinking of adding the ruffles as well but maybe I’ll do that later

    Beautiful! What a success! The sleeves and extra length totally transform the JJ. I don’t think the sleeves need to be any shorter though, leave them as they are they hang really well. Maybe I could make another JJ after all……..

    I love that you lengthened the overall body and left off the ruffles. Now I want to make your version of the JJ.
