I knew it wouldn't be long before I tried out the sleeved version of this pattern as a casual top instead of workout gear.
This is view A in a very soft printed cotton jersey from the stash. High fashion this is not, but it is an immensely practical and comfy wardrobe item (that makes me sound very old I know!).
Cutting out my sort of uneven striped fabric and focussing on pattern matching I stupidly cut two fronts by mistake and then didn't have enough to match the sleeves, it's not what I originally planned but it's OK.
Again I made a straight size V, but I raised the neckline at the centre front by about an inch tapering to nothing at the shoulders. I also did a different, and to me, more conventional binding treatment on the neckline than the sporty look per the pattern instructions. I simply finished one long edge of the binding on my serger and stitched it right sides together to the neckline. Then I folded it to the inside and stitched it down with a twin needle - very easy to do and it lies nice and flat.
I'll say again this is a great pattern and it's also reminded me that I have a few more Jalie top patterns in my stash which will probably work for both casual and workout wear too.
