Another Jalie Sweetheart Top

I made this a few weeks ago, but never got around to take a picture of me wearing it. It the Jalie Sweetheart sans the center elastic gathering. I think I actually like it better without the gathering and will definitely be making more!


So what are you doing this holiday weekend? Me, I have no idea. I will be finishing up a skirt from the 3/08 BWOF - it's #122 and I'm using some fabric from my LA PR trip. It's looking very fabulous if I do say so myself. Whatever you do, have a fun time and be safe!

Such a great top. I am loving easy knits at the moment!

I am hoping to get some UFOs done this weekend. We'll see. I'm always tempted by new stuff...

Did you have to make any adjustments for the bust when you left out the elastic? I thought I read that the FBA-crowd didn't need an FBA for this pattern, so I'm really glad to see it works for you without the elastic.

To answer you ladies (for some reason I never have your email in the comments to personally reply to your messages, sorry!):

Yes Toy, you need to get this pattern, it's devine!

Kirianth, I didn't make any adjustments, just sewed it as it. Maybe the elastic gathering makes more room for the bust, hence the reason I had to cinch my elastic down tighter in my first version.

Let me know if you ladies have other questions. As always, your sweet comments are so appreciated and are motiviational too! :-)
