Jalie Love

Well I have experienced the Jalie love. And I can see why they are raved about. I used the 2788 Twist Top. The fabric was a remnant I found at Spotlight - I am not sure of the blend, it is nice and stretchy though, and feels lovely on. Having never sewn a top like this before, the front piece did have me a little apprehensive at first. I made the back piece as one - I couldn't see the point of cutting two and having a back seam. I also left off the back neckline tie - I think it would have annoyed me too much! My only other alteration (other than not having enough fabric for 3/4 length sleeves), was to lengthen to the longest length and merge out from the V size line to W at the hips.



Cheers!
