Jalie released a new collection and I again got the opportunity to sew something from their new collection. I chose the reversible top: Elle.
Elle is a loose fitting dolman top with a knot you can wear in the front of the back. I loved the design of the knot when I saw the first drawings. However, when I sewed it up I wasn’t sure about it. It is a rather loose fit, which is not something I often wear. The recommended fabric for the top should have a minimum of 10% stretch. My fabric has more stretch so that makes it a bit more flowy. After putting it on several times I am growing to like it. Probably with the knot in the back, or maybe with the knot in the front, what do you think?
The top has two different sleeve lengths. I chose the extended sleeveless option. There is also a 3/4 sleeve option. If you look a loose fitting blouse I would choose the sizing that fits you, if you prefer a more fitted garment I would recommend sizing down. Of course the top comes in girls’ and womens’ sizing, all in one pattern!
