Jalie tops

Well I completed another Jalie top today. From start to finish sewing time, I completed this in about two hours. I made Jalie 2806. I used a knit fabric I purchased from EOS about 18 months ago. The knit was not what I thought I purchased after it arrived and I have had it just laying in the knit stash. It was a bit thinner than expected. It also wrinkles rather easily and I have not experienced that with a knit before. Not sure of the blend. So I decided to use it to make this and if things did not work out then not a real loss.

I am pleased with the fit of the pattern though I think I may take deeper seams through the waist area on the next one. I like the gathered fold over piece. I saw a similar top in Macy's several weeks ago. I plan to make another top or two using this pattern and the fold over as well as the ruching scoopneck style.

Here are photos of me wearing it after sewing it. It has not been fully pressed.

My DH and I went shopping and dining. Here is my second Sweetheart Neckline Jalie top I made about two weeks ago. I really like this Jalie pattern and see more of this top in my future as well.


  1. Lovely tops. I have both patterns, but only made the ruching front version of 2806 yet. Your results are inspiring.

  2. Nice tops. Both look really nice on you. And great fabric purchases!

  3. You in red roses, now that's a perfect match!

  4. Great looking top. Especially the red print.
