Despite having a generous supply of adult patterns (I seem to have a large stash of pretty much everything sewing-related), I rarely actually get around to sewing anything for myself. I've had this print earmarked for a Jalie 2806 top for several months, so when I saw that the Sewing Mamas January Challenge was sewing for yourself, I knew just what to make. Of course, I still waited until the last day of January.
Like the other Jalies I've sewn, the shirt went together quickly and the sizing was spot-on.
I'm not sure I'm crazy about the style on me, though. This is especially silly, because it looks just like the pattern picture. I know I look better in shirts that are more fitted through the middle, so why did I choose this one? I still like it, but I'll remember for next time that it's more suited to E. She's such a skinny thing that she can use some extra fabric. (Did you know Jalie patterns start with a toddler size 2 and go up to women's plus sizes? All in one pattern! Awesome.)
