Jalie 3352 Complete

Yes, I did complete a project!

I finished Jalie 3352 and was able to take a few photos before work yesterday when I wore the top.
Here is the top on a hanger--

I have to say that I ended up liking the top more after I paired it with pants that were similar to the light brown color in the print.  I am not sure that I like the drop shoulder on me as I don't think it is all that flattering.  The more I had it on, the more I adapted to the style.  I had to cut off some of the fabric at under arm curve as it was too much fabric and needed to be taken in some.  I cut off about 3/8 of an inch.  I took a tuck in the shoulder area of the pattern before cutting out the fabric.

I used my coverstitch machine to hem the bodice and the sleeves. I used my serger for the garment.  The knit fabric was perfect to work with.  I used bias fusible tape at the neckline and a woven tape for the shoulders.

I did not have to make a FBA; I did take 5/8 swayback adjustment and raised the neckline as well.

Here are photos of me wearing




I have to say I am a little tired of the high/low hemline style.  I think I am going to take a break from sewing that style for next top sewing projects.

It was fun to complete a project and have already decided on the next one.  More later.

    1. Thanks Janine! I like the hi-lo hems, it is just that I have made several of that style recently and want to do something different.

  2. This looks lovely - and so does the dropped shoulder. I do agree though, they are not as nice to wear as a set in sleeve. On the plus side, you can always recut this shape when you are tired of it. I'm with you about the hi-low hem thing - I still like them, but more on shirts and shirt dresses, not on everything, as we have been seeing. I notice now there is a straight version of the hi-lo hem which looks quite good.
