Jalie 3352

This Dolman top from Jalie is a quick and easy make.

I think it works great in a stripe.  Navy & white would give you a mariner's tee, but I prefer this fuschia bamboo jersey.  I suspected that the bamboo would be difficult to use as a binding....I thought I'd give it one go....some of it caught under and some of it didn't, so I just cut through the binding so that it curled up.

I made a size U, which corresponds to my measurements, but I think it is too big for me, which is most unusual for Jalie....usually I find their patterns very close fitting and always think I should have gone up a size.  The sleeves seem to be a much closer fit on the pattern models.

  2. I like that top and the color as well. I've never heard of Jalie before and will give them a look-up. And I don't think it looks too big but I like things loose myself.

    Where are you going "South"?

  3. What a shame it is too large. I have seen this pattern and since I love Jalie I am quite keen to order it.

  4. I think being on the large side doesn't matter for this style. My daughter's pinch mine all the time.

  5. I just saw a rtw that I want to replicate and this pattern would be perfect! You have great timing :) Love that raspberry color.

  6. Great fabric - I don't mind the looser fit on you.
