I am thrilled with how Jalie 2794: Haut avec décolleté en coeur (Sweetheart Top) turned out!

I absolutely adore the fabric. I ordered it from Fabric Mart last August and it was wonderful to work with, despite being a knit. This one is very stable and sews well. It is called “Multi magazine check collage stretch poly knit”, which is a very wordy way to say “Super cool magazine print”!

Close up with the sweetheart. I wish I had gathered the centre a bit more.

It is the details that make this top: the centre front gathering and the banding around the neckline and armholes. It is also the details that provide the more challenging aspects of making this pattern. However, the instructions are excellent, and include words and diagrams to make everything go well. The pattern pieces fit together beautifully and it is actually a pretty fun make!

Back of top. Ignore the drag lines; my dress form has narrower shoulders and a smaller waist than I!

I just had to show off more of the fabric! Is it not fabulous?!? I really love this top and am so pleased with how it turned out. I am looking for a similar knit, in terms of stability, to make more. Jalie wins!
