A Trifecta of Jalies

June 1, 2017   /   byDawn  / Categories :  Feeds

I have a race on Friday. It’s only a 12k but I wanted to be coordinate-y for it. I made three new Jalies because of it. (And because I CAN.) The first is the Pika Sports bra/top. I love the shape of the front yoke and I love that it’s fully lined. No pesky seams on the inside to rub on you. The second is the new Loulouxe running skirt. I can’t telly ou how much I love this skirt. The fun flirty shape!! The pockets!! The fit!! I made one more piece but I’ll talk about that below.

The dark red is a wicking Supplex. The print is a wicking poly blend. I love these colors together!

See how the inside is fully lined?? Love it!!!

Here’s the back of the sports bra. I really love it!

The inside of the skirt has a pair of shorts. There are optional pockets and I added two to my pair.

The pockets are really nice and I can put my iPhone in there with it’s annoying grabby LifeProof case.

You can tell when something is in my pocket because I get weird thigh lumps. But I would rather have that than some crap I have to carry in my hands.

I also added a huge, rear, zippered pocket. I wouldn’t but anything heavy in here because it would bounce around. But sometimes, like tomorrow, you need an ID, a credit card, and a car key and you don’t want to worry about them falling out of another pocket. I’m going to write a post in a day or two to show you people how to add your own pocket too.

My third piece is the new Jalie Valerie. This is a form fitting raglan. I wanted something that would keep me warm on race day. (My dog is a stalker and always wants to be WITH ME. When I go to the bathroom and open the door? SHE’S RIGHT THERE. If I go in another room? SHE FOLLOWS ME.)

I added fun contrast to the seam lines.

The fit is great. Duh. It’s a Jalie! I could always do a swayback alteration but I never do. I could probably do it easily with these side seams.

This is THE MOST luscious poly/spandex double brushed knit. It’s so cozy and soft.

I used a zig zag stitch that is decorative and utilitarian. It’s not the normal zig zag either, it’s the double zig zag because I wanted it to actually show up on this fabric.

All in all? I’m super happy with my new running outfit!!!

EBONY TEES AND SEAMLY CARDI IN MERINO JERSEY

This was my second year as a counselor at Camp Workroom Social and I was determined to be smarter in the wardrobe department than I was last year. I wanted clothing that was practical, stylish, comfy and interchangable. I already knew that I was bringing one pair of shoes (some back lace up boots which were much better than the heeled ones I wore last year) so everything needed to go with those and jeans. My color palette would be black (no surprise there), gray, white, blue, and camel. These really are the colors I wear all year long anyways. I am such a sucker for neutrals. This gave me the perfect excuse to sew up a few new things. After thinking about the criteria above, I settled on the Ebony tee in the cropped length and the Seamly Wrapped Cardigan which I had sewn up last year and loved. As for fabric choice, that was easy. I loved working with the merino wool jersey last year from The Fabric Store. They carry the perfect colors for my taste, plus the merino jersey feels so luxurious while still being washable. The perfect fall fabric in my book. I ended up […]
