Sewing is therapy for me. I hoard fabric, patterns, notions, and spend more time shopping for fabric than I care to admit...

Jalie Rose top

Have you seen the recent new Jalies?  This one, with all the cute makes, caught my eye!

This, as you can see, is a classic button down with modern styling.  

I used a telio woven from my stash.  I really love the colors and the floral pattern of this.  The collar is a lightweight denim from my stash.

This pattern is exceptionally well-drafted (as usual for Jalie).  The directions are fantastic (as usual for Jalie).

Directions have you use your full-bust for the size you choose.  I made a W.

The fit is spot on, at least I think it is!

I lowered the bust dart by almost an inch.  I deviated the hem line a bit as it is written.  

I added a pocket but it's hard to see on this busy print.  I even cut it on the bias but it's still somewhat camouflaged.  I can see making many more of these and especially if I lengthen this to a dress length and add pockets!

I hope you are making some great summer garments!
Thanks for reading!


  1. Thanks so much! You made my day!

  2. I love this top! Perfect pattern use!

  3. I've been eyeing this blouse pattern by Jalie too but I have so many Jalie patterns I have yet to make I MADE myself halt but now seeing yours I'm back into the dangerous temptation zone :) Love your blouse!! It's the sort of make you can have a gazillion of in your closet and never tire of them or making them for that matter. I'm just working now on a Jalie shorts pattern that I love too. The 3351 Swim Shorts. Such a clever pattern! I'm making up a muslin because I'd like to add them to a swim pattern but I needed to see their construction and fit first :)
