My sister needed something to wear on top of her clothes when she’s working… so there it is :)
Used the JJ patern as a base, but turned it into something almost like a dress, added 3 pockets, took all the ruffles out (uncluding on the sleeves!) and voil!

    Thank you so much for answering my question. I know exactly what you’re talking about. I’m sure other Burda members have the same question so a drawing would probably be a good idea . Your English is pretty good (^_^) Again, thank you so much

    I’m trying to take the fullness out of the sleeves. How did you do it? I’m thinking of redrawing the sleeve pattern and making darts then redrawing the curve. Do you think that would work? Or, is there a better way of doing it.

    Thanks in advance (^_^)

      Well… How can I explain… Hope you know english is NOT my first language… so this is going to be awkward trying to use the correct words to explain the technique, so… sorry in advance ;)

      What I was taught at my sewing and patterns class was to diminish the height on the “sleeve head” (does this word even exists in english??)

      The problem with your “making darts then redrawing the curve” idea is that inadvertably you might change the width and fit of the sleeve and then it won’t match the armhole…

      Now, you’ve made me think that I could make a drawing and try to publish it here on Burda’s site with that explanation! It’s much easier with a drawing… Do you mind wainting for a few days until I get it ready? I promisse I’ll contact you so you’ll be the first to see it, ok? :) ehehe

      Thanks and I will talk to you again soon =)
