Classic style with a modern twist... and without the bulk! I loooove draped knit cardigans. They look awesome when they are wrapped on models... but for some reason (I wonder if it's only me) I can never get them to stay wrapped nicely for more than 5 minutes and I end up taking them off after a while because I get tired of all that fabric hanging... And I end up thinking I look big because of the extra volume in the front... Not good..
Since we thought that other people were in the same situation... We are proud to show you the new "Jalie Cardi". It has the draped look we all like, ease around the hips, but no fabric getting in the way! The lovely pleats that run from shoulder seams down to the waist not only give it a unique look, but it keeps the garment flattering and fitted where it should be. The pointy shawl collar also adds a little je-ne-sais-quoi :)
Here is a close-up of the pleats:
NEW COLLECTION UPDATE
Septuplets... 38'' x 50'', 1/4 lbs each... Sending the pattern files to the printer somehow feels like labour & delivery (just as stressful and tiring, but without the pain of course)!
If everything goes as planned, the new patterns should be ready to ship around Dec. 22-23. Since many of you will probably be anywhere but sitting at your computer, ready to place a pattern order a few days before Christmas, we will accept pre-orders (probably starting later this week or early next week).
I'm pretty sure that a few online retailers will also do the same. I will keep you posted as we go through the printing-folding-shipping-packaging steps... I will also let you know when online retailers outside Canada setup their catalogs to accept pre-ordres.
Now ladies, let's all keep our fingers crossed so that everything stays on schedule!
