New Jalies!

Three weeks ago I ordered three new Jalie patterns and received my fourth one free! I’d been wanting to order the yoga pant pattern because my Kwik-Sew pattern no longer fits me – how nice to get it as a gift! I love Jalie and thought their three latest top patterns would be nice additions to my collection:

sweethearttop

This is just a cute, simple tee with a little something extra. You can never have too many of these patterns in your stash!

tunic

Yes, I know we’ve seen this Duro look for a couple of seasons but it’s still in the stores, at least here in Fashion Hell. It’s a style that I really like and did not have a pattern for. I like the fact that there is a version without gathers over the stomach. Lengthened, this would make a super-cute summer dress.

twisttop

Of course, I am powerless to resist a twist top. I like the center front flounce for a little interest.

yogapants

These yoga pants are a perennial favorite and I’m happy to add this pattern to my collection.

One pattern that I had no interest in was the Criss-Cross Top, #2787. It just looked like it was trying too hard to be cute and different.

At least that is what I thought until I saw Ann’s version last night! Isn’t this a stunner? Naturally, some of that gorgeous fabric is winging it’s way to me for a dress…yes, I am powerless.

Before you make this, be sure to read Ann’s entire review over at Gorgeous Things. Also, if you haven’t yet, you must check out Ann’s online fabric store: Gorgeous Fabrics. Her fabrics are amazing and the prices are unbelievable. And I’m not just Ann’s friend, I’m a customer too!

  1. Oooooh, I love Jalie. They are by far my favorite! I have made that crosstop too. I love that there are so many sizes to choose from. I have made several pants for me and my daughters (almost 2YO) from the same pattern. Amazing fit on both of us.

    Gigi,
    Have you made the yoga pants yet? I would like to make some for my 2 friends who are just starting out in yoga- they say they look like the Beverly Hillbillies in their sweat pants. How is the fit of the pattern?
