Jalie 3881 Rose - Sleeveless Button Down Shirt
I made View A with one pocket
Size: V for Shoulder/Bust/Waist, and grading to Y at the hip. Exact to my measurements
Instructions: Excellent as always; very well written. These are by far the best collar pieces and instructions I have ever seen and sewn.
Fabric: 2 yards of cotton Poplin from a FabricMart Precut sale. Seagreen/White/Black 100% Cotton Little Lambs Print Poplin - Cotton + Steel – 44W; Total cost: $3.30 for this top
Thoughts: excellent top, awesome fit. I really loved putting this collar together. I have never sewn one that looked so good. I enjoy the forward shoulder seam too. My fabric is really soft but structured. It looks looser fit than if I had made the top in something clingier and drapey like challis
Issues: The pocket. I feel like it is situated too high. Also, the armhole sits forward, showing straight into my bra. However, if it were tighter there I wouldn’t have as much ease of movement.
I was a tester for this pattern and I think the top looks great, I love it; especially with my Jalie Drop Pocket Cardigan as above.
