New Jalie Pattern Mimosa

Mimosa 3890
Size T
Alterations:  1/2" Swayback Adjustment

The Mimosa is Jalie's new scoopneck tee!  Here I have chosen View C with short self-tie sleeves.  Other views include short rolled up sleeves with a breast pocket or long sleeves with a flounce.

Jalie includes finished length measurements in the pattern instructions so you can adjust for fit if necessary.  I love the length because it is perfect to wear with leggings.  I like to have a long enough length to cover my bottom.

I did use thin strips of knit interfacing to stabilize my hems on my sleeves since they require top stitching.  I tried without but could not achieve a stable straight stitch that I was happy with, which was probably due to my fabric stretch.

My fabric print looks like a big blob of ink on my shirt right at the center front! LOL  Pattern placement, something I don't always (never) think about until after it's too late.  

Coordinated my top with the new Clara Legging pattern.

Fabric for my top purchased at Joann's.

  1. The scoopneck tee is very cute, and looks comfortable. The ties are so lovely. I will add the pattern to my wish list. I would love to make the long sleeves version too.

    1. Thanks Eli! I definitely need to get busy making more tops for summer. I can't believe how few I have to wear right now.

  2. Super cute top Shirley!! It looks terrific with your leggings and the ties at the sleeves are a nice touch. Love the fabric!! :)

    1. Thanks Lisa! I do love this fabric. I think I have enough to maybe squeeze out another top from it. :) Maybe this time I can make sure to not have a blob of color at the belly ha ha

  3. This looks lovely! I really like the sleeve detail.

    1. Thanks! It's really right on trend with the sleeve ties in the stores!
