If you haven’t heard the news, Jalie is releasing their new patterns today! This also means that I can finally share with you some of the projects that I’ve been working on behind the scenes!

I had the wonderful opportunity to test a number of Jalie’s latest releases and thought I would start with one of my favorites, the Julia; which includes a camisole, bralette, and underwear (I opted to make the camisole and matching low cut underwear). What sets this apart from other styles is that both are finished with fold over elastic and the underwear has a crossover illusion.

I’ve had the opportunity to wear these for awhile now and have to say that both are super comfy – I wore my Julias while we were on vacation where I did an abundance of walking and didn’t get a wedgie! As for fabrics, I opted to make mine both out of cotton (I did not use powernet for the bralette lining as I really didn’t need the extra support), but I think that the camisole would make a fantastic top if you used a drapey material. Now I’m on the hunt for fun fold over elastics – like the rainbow style that I used on the right.

    I just ordered 2 of their new patterns and then won a sewing challenge which meant I could buy another (and of course just went ahead and bought 2 more!) Love Jalie patterns – they always fit me SO well and what a bargain they are coming in such broad size ranges. Cute swimsuit!
