Jalie 3352

October 4, 2015

My name is Devery and I make Jalie 3352 a lot. A lot. And when I make it, I make the biggest size and add a hood. I wear this comfy, slouchy sweater/hoody all winter long. It’s completely cozy and warm and I just love it. It might be one (or five–because I have made five of these) of my favorite pieces of clothing.

I say all this because I need to report that I made this pattern again. This time I used this dreamy leopard-print that I ordered from Mood. The front of this fabric is a wool, sweater-knit:

The back is a wool fleece. It’s yummy.

I like to add a hood to this pattern because (a) I like hoods; and (b) it kinda looks like a cowl neck and I dig that. I actually copied the hood from a RTW top that I have. Here’s what it looks like. I cut the front of the hood on the fold.

Don’t you like my pattern weights? I bought them at the Habitat for Humanity Restore. I bet you didn’t know that the Restore sold pattern weights! 🙂

I serged all the seams and used my coverstitch machine for the hem. I decided to add the cuffs for fun. Here’s the finished product:

I love the drop tail on this pattern. I think it makes a really interesting hemline, and it hides my butt!!! I also love what the hood does for the neckline.

I wonder if I could get way with wearing this at work? Maybe with some skinny black pants and black boots??????

People have asked me how many sizes I went up when I made this top. If I were making a regular version of this Dolman top out of a stretch-knit, I would make a size T or U. But when I make this slouchy top out of fleece or this thick wool, sweater-knit, I use size FF–the biggest size included in the pattern.

On a side-note, what do y’all listen to when you sew? The TV? Music? Nothing? I usually have something on in the background. Sometimes it’s NCIS on TV. Sometimes it’s some other trash-TV program that I will not identify, but it comes on Bravo and it’s allegedly “Real.” Today, it was the tunes, specifically this. I LOVE The Turnpike Troubadours!!

    This is awesome! I love this pattern too and your versions make it perfect for fleece as well as quilted wovens! Who would have thought to use quilted? I’m seriously thinking of copying your hood cowl.
