Seeing Spots, in a good way

I was going to blog about the outfit I made for the office X-mas party, but I made this shirt last week and love it so much that I bumped it up in line.

This is Jalie's 2794, the new sweetheart knit top pattern. I LOVE IT!!!! If I thought The Boy and the cats would tolerate it, I would make it up for all of them and make them wear it too.




Fabric:
Two knit fabrics from Gorgeous Fabrics. I bought the dotty fabric and ordered a swatch of the pink solid based on one of Ann's Perfect Pairing recommendations. And then the swatch was almost big enough for me to use for the binding.....so I did. Shame on me. Don't look at the back neckline too closely, because it is sadly pieced together there. :-)

Alterations or Changes?:
None!! For the first time ever I think, I made a pattern straight out of the envelope. I have a bunch of other Jalie patterns that have now moved to the top of my To Do list. They fit me nicely and are well drafted with good instructions.

Conclusion:
As I said, this is now one of my favorite patterns. As an added bonus, when I wore it for the first time The Boy said "Wow, did you make that? It looks awesome!" This is a ringing endorsement since 1) he almost never notices what I wear 2)when forced to give his opinion, it is generally of the "that's nice" variety. I had so many complements on it the night I wore it out, that I think I am going to be making and/or teaching at least two of my friends to make one as well!

I ordered a bunch of patterns from Jalie thanks to your review. I can't wait to get them. This one is the first that I'm going to make.
