I’ve been playing around some more with the Jalie patterns I ordered a few weeks ago. This one is Jalie #2787, this time made with sleeves. The fabric was formerly 3 old t-shirts which I dyed during a recent tie-dye event we had in our front yard with a bunch of the neighbor kids.
The next one is Jalie # 2682. This was the first time I made this pattern. The fabric for this was a dye experiment that I was unsure about. I figured it was good fabric to try out a new pattern as I wouldn’t be out much if the fit needed more adjusting. I ended up loving the result. I did change the sleeves on this, using the bell sleeves from the previous pattern as they just seemed to go with the tie-dye more than straight sleeves would.
Here is the front:
Here is the back:
For both shirts, I used the pattern size that matched my bust measurement for the width and cut the pattern two sizes smaller for the neck and shoulders. I can’t wait to make both of these out of some better fabrics, although both of these will definitely be part of my fall wardrobe once it cools off enough here to wear long sleeves!
