Jalie 3667

January 2, 2018

It’s time to make a confession: I may be addicted to sewing Jalie 3667. I have sewn it A LOT and I am not sure if I am going to stop.

It all started with the 3667 turtleneck that I made in green sweater knit from the Fabric Joint. I made a size T.

I liked it so much that I decided to make another out of an oatmeal sweater knit, also from the Fabric Joint.

Then Christmas came and went and I had some time off of work. So I decided to make another 3667 out of sweater knit from Joann’s.

Then I decided I needed to try the hooded version of 3667. I cut a size Y so that it could be more like a tunic, and used a luscious Italian knit that I bought at Mulberry Silks in Carrboro, NC.

I loved the tunicky feel of the size Y. I wanted another one. Then the weather turned cold and I thought, “I want to make a warm tunic with a turtle neck.” I wanted to use up some of my fleece scraps so I tried to combine 3667 with 2795. The result was not good.

It had a weird dolmany look that I was not digging. So I decided to take it apart and make a straight 3667 black tunic turtleneck.

I LOVE this one. It’s made out of a faux, stretch wool from JoAnn’s. I tried to buy more of this stuff online, but it’s all gone.

Honestly, I think this is when the addiction fully took hold. I still wanted to hack this pattern. I did some online searching of different sweater styles and came up with this version:

The grey fleece is Polartec and the camo is wool fleece from Mood. I was psyched about the results of my hack, so I wanted to make another.

This time I used leftover pieces of sweater knit–the red,black, & cream is from Mulberry Silks (Carrboro, NC) and the cream & black is from Metro Textiles (NYC).

Then I started to feel like I had taken things too far, but I still wanted to make one more so I made this fleece version–size Y in grey Polartec.

I’m not sure what to say. I love this pattern. It’s fun to sew and fun to wear. Please do not judge me. I might sew it again.

    Wow! All your tunics are awesome. They look comfy and easy to wear. I think the red hooded version is my personal favorite! Wish I was as productive as you are.

    This is great! And I am told that one doesn’t need many patterns to create all of the garments needed. It’s better to perfect a few patterns to fit you perfectly and just alter their features. I need to do this, too.

    • Thanks so much! Every now and then I find a pattern that I really love and then I just want to sew it over and over again. Hopefully I make myself stop sewing 3667 by the time that spring gets here! 🙂
