JJ BurdaStyle

Here's my version of the BurdaStyle JJ blouse.
It still needs a hem, but I had to get the photo while I still had some light.
I did change it up a little on the front. The print that I chose was busy, so I eliminated the front ruffles; and streamlined it a bit.

Both the front and back have a side panel. The end result is a fairly fitted silhouette.

The front placket was up-cycled from another shirt.

the fabric is from my stash

The JJ pattern is free, available as a download on the BurdaStyle site.

Very nice! The contrasting ruffle is a nice design touch.

Cute! I like the solid white ruffle against the print. Very nice.

Nice! I really like the flowery fabric. It gives it kind of a seventies feel, I think. Cute.

I love your rendition of this top - the print and the subtle ruble on the front are divine!
