Jalie 3462 (Cora)
I love this outfit! I think the 2 patterns together make an awesome combination. Having made this twice before, definitely 3rd time was a charm for me. Previously I used swimwear in addition to dri-fit. This time I purchased some 4-way stretch active wear from Fashion Fabrics Club. I like this so much better. Even though swimwear fabric worked for me, it definitely doesn't stretch as much as this fabric. In the future I'll just keep the swimwear fabric for, well, swimwear!
So far I think this is my favorite Jalie top pattern (I have some new ones I have yet to sew up though). You can make a version of this top without the zipper (V-neck) should you choose. This time I cut a thin strip of interfacing to stabilize my fabric before sewing the zipper on.
The fabric design of the print dulls a little when stretched as seen here at the calf area.
Next I'll be focusing on Christmas sewing. I'll be making some red plaid flannel hand warmers to give out as teacher gifts. I'm also anxious to spend some time making zippered pouches! I purchased some beautiful Waverly prints last weekend that I plan on using.
