Thermal Hearts

I didn’t intend on making another Jalie top so quickly, but after spending so much time on the Boulevard Jacket, I was ready to work on an ‘instant gratification’ project. However, this time, the top wasn’t for me, it was for Taylor:

I had found this heart print thermal knit in the clearance section of Joann’s – not only did it scream Taylor’s name, but it was also an additional 50% off (apparently the thermal knits did not sell well because they shrunk up so much after washing)! Unfortunately they didn’t have quite enough of this print for the long sleeve tee so I improvised – I used a ribbed knit to make cuffs at the ends of the sleeves. I think this also gave the top a more ready-to-wear look, too. The most important thing is that she liked it, which says a lot, Taylor hasn’t let me sew anything for her in ages!
By the way, thank you all for the comments on the jacket! I’m glad it looks o.k. (the patterns aren’t so off that it’s obvious to everyone in the picture) to everyone – I’m wearing it with pride this weekend!

    Very cute! (Although, I’m kind of biased – I’m a heart person myself – during my 20s I actually wore heart-shaped-framed glasses all the time!) Good save with the cuffs – I think it looks better that way anyways… 🙂

    Adorable! I just love this top – and the fabric – so cute! Great job – you’re such a rockin’ Mommy – pat yourself on the back 🙂

    Cute top. I like it with the solid white on the cuffs and neck.
