Bad Blogger

I have been a bad blogger of late.  Between work and some personal issues, I just have not been motivated to sew as much or post anything.

With some of those issues resolved,  I am feeling better and ready to like get back to sewing and blogging.  My denim dress is still a work in progress.  I am going to use snaps instead of button and buttonholes.I just need to mark the placements and do it.

While waiting to get motivated to install the snaps, I decided to pin fit Jalie 3352.

With my recent completed Jalie raglan sleeve top, I decided to go down a size in the bust area.   I raised the neckline about 1 1/2 inches as I find that Jalie necklines are too low for me.  I did my usual swayback and forward shoulder adjustments.  I also shortened the shoulder length by 3/8.

The fabric I used was from GirlCharlee, knit fix purchase in January.


I did not like it at first.  I then saw a few other items that had some of the lavendar color and I pulled out this fabric.  The more I looked the better it got.  The quality of the knit is nice, similar to a sweater knit.  I am using the same contrast color for the sleeves that was used in my last Jalie top.

The weather this week has turned a little cooler and that is helping me to get into sewing clothes for the upcoming season changes.

More later!

  1. I hope things are settling for you. Nothing quite as draining as personal issues. You have a lovely fabric to work with here, so I hope this distracts you in a healthy way.
