More about Jalie 2921 and Butterick 6102

When last we spoke, I wasn’t so sure how I felt about Butterick 6102. Since that time, I have done the following things: (a) I bought myself a new iron–the steam function had died on my old iron; and (b) I hemmed the darn thing. It’s amazing what a good iron and a hem will do for a skirt!!! I do officially like this skirt–I like the A-line and I actually like the pleats now that they are ironed down!! It’s made out of a kelly green linen that wrinkles like crazy, but the color is so beautiful that I almost don’t mind the propensity for wrinkles. The skirt went together easy-peasy. I serged all of the seams because the linen looked ready to unravel, and I hate unraveling fabric.

Here’s the back view:

The Jalie top was fun to put together. The fabric is a navy and ivory pique that I got from Fabric.com.

This top was fun to sew–after you attach one side of the tie to the neckline, you roll the front and back up into the tie and then finish sewing the front of the tie to the back. It sounds crazy, but it works. How do the Jalie people figure this stuff out??? I will definitely be making this one again!

Here’s a close-up tucked in:

    I’m inspired to try a pleated skirt. Looks like a classic that you will get a lot of wear out of.
