Well, let me tell you about this pattern by pattern maker Jalie. I know, I know. I'm a little late jumping on the Jalie wagon. ..But not really. You see, I have already made Anna's Jalies.
I did make me a pair of Jalie's, but they were mistakenly made from NON STRETCH denim and the pattern specifically calls for STRETCH denim. Now, I could show you how they fit but I refuse to be copied and pasted on YouTube and put on blast around the world. Let's just say they didn't make up my thighs and my pockets were on my high thighs.
But let me redeem myself. I REMADE JALIE AND SHE IS BEAUTIFUL. I may never (I didn't say I WILL never), buy a pair of jeans again. Move over Old Navy, Gap, WAL-MART! Jalie has entered the building.
Made with Jalie is actually a top that was made about a year back. It is McCall's 5853, a very comfortable top that I plan on making again in the sorda' near future. Ok, I won't make you hurry up and wait any more. Here's my outfit.
Quit looking at my toes. No, they are not painted! Next, are the pictures of this beautiful ensemble. No body does it better than making something something that you know no one else will have.
The frillies are just strips of circles sewn on straight. Too easy. And with a great knit there is no need to finish the outer edge because the fabric does not ravel. At first, I thought the print was too busy for the frillies but they actually hide my extra serving of macaroni and cheese very well.
This is how I feel now that I know I don't have to pay for another pair of jeans.
