Jalie 2804 – Empire Cross Top

I made another Jalie cross top. I’ve made a couple of these. I made a sleeveless version with the cute little shoulder ties and two long sleeved versions. On those versions the empire waist was just a tiny bit high so I lowered it by about an inch on this version.

I really like this pattern. It’s a timeless staple. I think this type of top always looks nice. An inch may have been a little much. I could have probably lowered it by a half inch. Now I have to wear a camisole with it. I made this out of a mid-weight jersey from JoAnn’s. It’s really cozy. Nothing too special about this top. Just a nice, easy one to make. I love Jalie.

Next? Well, my kids are begging for some jammies. I’ll have to see what kind of cute embroidery I can crank out.

Looks great! I can understand why you want multiples of those.
