After spending quite a bit of time sewing up two projects for the Sewing Republic website, it was nice to spend some time working on something just for me. I retraced Jalie 2804, the empire crossover top several days ago. Instead of going down one size, I decided to go down two – I’m slowly shrinking to more of my pre-pregnancy measurements and I know that only going down one grade will mean that this top will eventually look ‘sloppy’ on me (plus it’s motivation for me to work into wearing that size)! Even though this pattern is a bit snug on me at the moment, it’s still very cute and the fabric works perfectly with this pattern. I can definitely see myself make this one again! As soon as I find some time today, I’ll be posting a full review at Pattern Review.
