My first try-out of JJ. Blouse is really difficult to make, and I made it as try-out, so I used leftover fabric and that is not enough to make full JJ. Next time I can maybe make it better, but pattern(I used smallest 34) is sadly too big for me… I really like this pattern so, maybe I need to make pattern smaller when I copy.

I will donate this to Rote Kreuz or Humana, maybe somebody can wear it.

    Having the same problem, it is coming out much much too big, I am usually a size 36 (uk 8) and this is so much bigger.

    Great to read your profile stories and I have exactly the same feeling about the size. Glad you said about this pattern is too big for you. Otherwise, I would have made the same mistake. This will be too big for me (I am size 32 by measurement. Yet, I found some of the size 32 pattern too big …)

    This How-To is about enlarging patterns but can also be used to change a multi-size pattern to a smaller size. I’m going to try it out myself, it looks really simple, you should try it for the JJ (your first try is very nice, it’s a shame it came out too big).

    that’s too bad! i really like the fabric you used! I hope you can find a way to alter the pattern so that it fits you! good luck!
