New Jalie 3880 Bobbie V-Neck Top

 Jalie 3880
Bobbie V-Neck
Size T
Alterations:  1/2" Forward Shoulder and Sloped Shoulder Adjustment

I love this top!  It is so quick and easy to make!  In fact, all sewing was accomplished on my sewing machine alone--stretch stitch, zig zag stitch, and straight stitch.

I am desperately in need of summer tops and I will be filling up my closet with several of these.

The cropped, tank-like facing is genius.  Here you can see that it nicely covers your undergarments.

I did make make a muslin in some inexpensive knit to test fit.  I determined that my shoulder seam sat too far back and needed to be adjusted to come forward.  I went ahead and sloped my shoulder seam by 1/4" since I have had to do that on some tops.  Maybe it wasn't necessary, but I had plenty of depth to play with, so I figured it wouldn't hurt.

My fabric is a jersey knit purchased from Joann Fabrics.  Lately they have had some very pretty knits.

My shorts are made from Jalie 2908 jeans pattern.

  1. Your top looks pretty. I Love the idea of the cropped tank- like facing.

    1. Thank you Ann! It really is a great top that gives that layered look without having to layer.

  2. Very cute!! That necklace goes well with the top. I'm going to make my T-shirt for the summer. I will use the idea of the tank. The review is informative for me:)

    1. Thanks Eli! I love this necklace; I have a hard time pairing up necklaces with the right shirts though. When we travel, I buy jewelry as souvenirs for myself.

  3. Another simple but lovely top that I’m sure you’ll get a lot of wear out of!

    1. Thank you! I do! It seems like this top is one of the first ones I grab now. I must make more!
