I do love Jalie patterns. Here is a dress that I made for a co-worker using Jalie 2793. The fabric, of course, is from Gorgeous Fabrics.
It was soooo simple to make this tunic into a dress....just add on some length and voila! It turned out so cute I may need to make one for me.
I used the coverstitch machine for the first time on this dress to hem it and I am in LOVE! How did I ever work without one?!?!? I made a couple other dresses for co-workers, but didn't get shots of them before they left me.
On the cutting table right now is a new skirt, Vogue 8561. It is very different for me as I am usually not into the Marcy Tilton patterns, but this one is just funky enough without being too funky. I like long skirts, even though I really am too short to wear them.
So far it is going....ok. A bunch of the notches are not matching up, but I am not sure if that is the pattern, the fact that so many pieces are on the bias and are getting out of whack before I sew them, or just me being a blockhead. But I am forcing it to go together without notch matching and it seems to be working so far... I hope to finish it tonight and hopefully post pictures this weekend.
