I made my first JJ at last. Everyone’s JJ looks so gorgeous and I have been inspired so much. I made it quite as instructed. I only altered sleeves to long ones.

Material Notes

Shirting cotton, pale brown. shell buttons.

Thanks, BurdaStyle!

    Hi Yoshimi, I love this shirt! How elegant! I like it better than the original short sleeve version. Did you redraft the sleeve pattern? How were you able to do that? Did you also remove the gathering at the top shoulder part of the sleeve? I wish I knew how to do this. I love it!! This one is my favorite JJ I have seen! I love your blog as well

    You look great and did such a wonderful job on the JJ. Impressive, you drafted the sleeve. I still have trouble adding a cuff much less drafting one. Way to go! (P.S. those shoes rock)

    Hello Yoshimi. Your JJ looks elegant and classic in white with long sleeves. It fits you well. The back view has a nice shape too.
