Pattern Description:
"This adorable blouse is the winning entry of our first pattern competition, designed by JJ. It was chosen for its simple yet sophisticated design as well as the patterns adaptability to home sewing. The simple ruffles and delicate puffed sleeves make the top perfect for date night, but the fit and collar make it also perfect to wear to work!"

Pattern Sizing:
34-46
I made a size 42

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes

Were the instructions easy to follow?
Very easy

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
This is my 3rd JJ, I love the versatility, you don't have to add the ruffles if you don't want to. The collar is very modern (but can be swapped out, same with the sleeves) and the fitting is easy with princess seams.

Fabric Used:
Cotton

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
None.
I do recommend a high quality cotton, for example, my second JJ is from Japanese cotton and never needs ironing, which is great with all those ruffles!

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Well I've made 3 but I am sure there will be more! A great go to pattern, highly recommended
