Today’s the day! Today Jalie patterns release their new collection so I can finally show you some of the projects I’ve been working on! First up, the Alex.

Jalie’s Alex

Alex is a 1/2 zip, unisex pullover jacket with welt pockets and an optional elastic waistband. It has a great color blocking option and is very easy to put together – yes, even with welt pockets. I think that putting in a welt pocket seems daunting to some, but I can honestly say that this was one of the best looking pockets I’ve put in (and it wasn’t difficult either)… and in fleece no less (you can see an up close photo of the pocket in this post).

I’m anxious to sew one up for myself this fall in something like a Wind Pro type fabric – with moving to a colder climate, I’m sure that I will get lots of use out of it!
