Finished x2 Jalie 2921
Pattern: Jalie 2921
Fabric: Cotton/Spandex knit from Girl Charlee
Notions: Just thread and seam stabilizer.
Size sewn: I sewed a G (size 3) for my DD and for my self: T in the bust, grading to a U in the waist & a V in the hips.
Alterations/Design Changes: I cut DD's top off at the waist marking & added a pleated skirt. This was my original "vision" Don't be jealous of my mad fashion sketching skillz.
Likes: The results are so professional!!
Dislikes: I could have stuck with size T all the way through I think. The sleeves are symmetrical, which is a pet peeve of mine. But, they do seem to have a better fit than other symmetrical sleeves I've sewn.
Time to Complete: Not much! I think mine took one nap time to construct (90 minutes?) and another 20 to hem? Fast.
New Techniques: Rolling the shirt into the collar (the "burrito"). Drafted a pleated skirt for DD.
Total Cost: I had all the notions on hand, so.....about $15 for each.
Fabric: $18 for 3 yards
