Excitement filled my sewing space soon after i joined the - 'One pattern many views ' contest hosted on patternreview.com. I am a newbie and my first pattern was a Sorbetto and later i made the JJBlouse.
I opted to choose my favourite JJ Blouse pattern and I sewed 3 variations from 3 different fabric materials.
This is how the JJ Blouse line drawing looks...So frilly and pretty isnt it ?
SportyCheckmate JJ Blouse:
...Oh this part is my favourite : I cut the 'Side Back' and the 'side front' pieces on bias.. So you see the plaids go in different directions adds a good effect..
...gathers at sleeve edges...reduced button band by half.. used press buttons on the inside and Big bright pink decorative buttons on top..(I love these buttons aren't they cute ???)
Its very comfortable to wear and i do not mind repeating this again that i love this pattern..(big grin)
Pretty Plain Pink JJ blouse:
This ones to wear with a skirt...I used plain pink rayon material. material not so easy for a beginner like me but went on well with a little patience..
...reduced the width of the sleeve band.. eliminated the collar and made it a round neck finished with a bias binding..
Retained only the ruffles near the button band.. and i used invisible press buttons...
Used a little darker thread so that the ruffle edges look pretty , dont they? :)
Dotty Naughty JJ Blouse:
This variation i made with Polycotton and brilliant mini polka dots :)
I added piping to the seams in front and back.(psst.. yeah this is my first project with piping.)
Just extended the centre front edge and gathered near the top buttons...
This is my sleeve with pleats instead of gathers and the button.. Happy i sewed the sleeve placket.. On my first blouse i had omitted them..
By the way did you like my head band?? i made it out of the scraps left over ;)
Thanks for dropping by and I hope you liked my Blouse variations.. :)
