Sneak Peeks... 6 of 10

Jalie's take on a staple garment: 3129 - Women's Vests.

When you are a t-shirt & jeans type like I am (and suffer from the post-baby-muffin-top syndrome), a little vest can quickly become your new best friend :) Its brings a new life to plain tees and hides little bumps and lumps showing with tops that are a bit tight around the waist.

We put a Jalie twist to it with a great sewing technique that is totally different from what people are used to. Sewing these lined vests involves NO HAND STITCHING! For those of you who made 2921, Jeanne says it is just as fun as the scarf-collar top sewing technique.

This pattern includes three different styles:

A - Classic vest with darts (front and back) and mock welt pocket and back tie


B - More edgy style with princess seams, decorative flap and peplum


I really like how the peplum pieces meet at center back.


C - Cropped vest (view B without the peplum)



This pattern comes in 17 sizes (so do the shirt and nursing tops patterns), starting at adult size "P" (31'' bust), just like we did for the suit jacket, skirt and pants a few years ago (patterns 2559, 2560 and 2561).

Next up, 3131, an underwear pattern that I think will start a few "sewalongs"...

Vraiment super! Je sens que je vais coudre du Jalie cet automne! J'adore moi aussi la basque du dos de la 2e version. Ce patron est définitivement sur ma liste.
