New Sewing Patterns Preview - 7 of 7

Last but not least! 3028 - Figure Skating Dresses, a figure skating dress pattern with a twist... literally :)




This pattern includes two upper bodice styles and optional flounce for the tiered A-line skirt.
  • View A has a twist front and allows for fun color blocking when you use two different fabrics for the twist piece layers.
  • View B has a halter neckline with a pinched V front. This style will be very popular amongst skaters who like Joanie Rochette's halter dresses!
The back is open with a piece that goes across, just below the shoulder blades. An elastic is sewn where the upper and lower bodice meet for a nice snug fit.

A teenager who saw the dress told me it reminded her of Bella's prom dress in Twilight (that I have not had a chance to watch - so I quicly went online to take a look and SHE WAS RIGHT!!! Longer flounces and the right blue would indeed work wonderfully for a Bella program :)

Now that you have seen previews of the entire collection, you will have a to wait a few days before pre-ordering your favorite styles from www.jalie.com. Some retailers might also allow pre-orders, so keep checking your favorite store's website for updates!

Good news for US customers and stores: Canada Post and USPS have signed a new agreement and now offer quicker delivery. This means that delivery should now take 5-7 business days instead of the 10-12 business days we were used to.
