Jalie 2804 - Empire Cross Top

I made two of these today. It is a fast pattern even when you have to trace the pieces. Here is the review at

I know its hard to see the details. It was raining hard outside and there was no way I was going to put the camera out there. It is really long and I love that. I'm not even going to hem it; I'll just let it roll. The sleeves are long too. This is a heather grey from Gorgeous Fabrics. I love it.

The back of a knit top. I know, nothing to look at. I just felt like it would be bad form to show the front and not the back. You can also see the China Marker I use for tracing.

The first version. Word of wisdom: Jalie says 40% stretch and they really mean it. Can you tell it's tight? I can barely get it on. It is really long too but it ain't fitting over these hips.

I love tops like this because you play the cross up or down.

This is the pattern I received from Deepika for completing my Wardrobe Contest first.

Next up: Finish the Burda WOF pants . . .

They're tight but you can certainly carry it off! They look great, especially the grey version.

Happy Birthday!
