Oh Jalie

Oh how I love this Jalie 2806 pattern! It is such a good fit on me. This is the third time I have made it. I remember wearing my first version and thinking "this feels so good on". When the fit is right-all is well in the world! The fabric is a knit from JoAnn's. It was featured in their summer fashion magazine.

I made the gathered neckline view. The past two versions were the large pleat view. The three quarter sleeves stay put on your arms. Since I am a petite, some sleeves are long and I am constantly pushing them up.
The directions have illustrations along with the text. I don't think anyone will have a problem following them. Children sizes are included. I am ready to cut another one out this week. It is a nice transitional top for the weather on the east coast.


  1. Welcome to the world of blogging. It's great. You'll love it.

  2. Congratulations on starting your own blog. I love the name you chose. Wish I had thought of it first.

    You have made some really cute things. Love your fabric choices.

    So sorry to hear about your favorite sewing store closing. It is very sad. But like you said, now you have us. We are a close community and are there for each other. I have learned so much from the other blogs and have become friends with several of the ladies.

    Thanks so much for the nice comment you left on my blog. I hope you'll come back and visit me again. Be sure and say hi when you do so I'll know you were there. Glad to know you.

  3. It looks fabulous! I am loving those knit fabrics at Joann's right now!
