Jalie 2682 & 3024 Combo
I just got some grey Polartec powerstretch…actually I got 6 yards of it!! I couldn’t help myself–it was on super sale. It was almost like they were paying me to buy it. You know how that goes. So it looks like I’m going to be adding a lot grey items to my wardrobe!! I decided to start with a dress, but I wanted it to be a sporty dress. I wanted it to be like something you could find in the Patagonia or Prana catalogs. I couldn’t find the exact pattern that I wanted, so I tried to invent my own. I took the upper bodice from Jalie 2682 and added to the waistband and skirt of Jalie 3024. These two patterns merged very easily with no major adjustments. Honestly, this thing went together lickety split. I broke out the coverstitch machine to do the hems and completed the whole thing–cutting out to hemming–in less than 3 hours.
