Jalie 2804 - Empire Cross Top

Here's item #2 for the wardrobe contest. I'm sick and have crappy hair. There. I love making knit tops. Talk about instant gratification.
 
This Jalie top went together easily. I have already made it several times (here, here, and here) so any fitting issues take been worked out already. I didn't put in the modesty panel. I am wearing a tank under this but it's a thin wool one to keep me warm at my school.

Did you notice the pants? They are the ones I made the other day. I hope to get another knit top and my Jalie jeans out of the way this weekend. I can't trace out any of the Burdas because I'm out of tracing paper. No worry though, I have plenty to keep me busy. Here's the cheese ball photo . . .

Great looking top and the pants are fabulous.

I've got that pattern traced. All I need to do is cut fabric and sew like mad!

I think I want to make it into a dress, too, but I want a fuller skirt.

Very nice top. I have some of that fabric, too, that wants to be made up.

I really love your fabric, I must get it!! the top and color looks great on you!

Me too, when I need a quick fix, I always turn to my Jalie knit tops. I believe I've made this one twice already for me, and one for each of my daughters!! It's one of my favorite, but the one that fits me perfectly, and could probably make with my eyes closed!! is the 2788 one...

Nice top --- the print is cool. The photo with your daughter is too cute! Your storyboard from a previous post is great --- can't wait to see all the pieces. Hope you feel better soon!
