I’ve had the honour to do a bit of pattern testing for Jalie this past week, and it’s been a fun challenge.
If you’ve been following my blog for a while, the Jalie name is familiar to you. I’ve been sewing their patterns for years, starting when I owned a sewing machine retail store where I sold patterns, fabric and notions along with the sewing machines. Many of the garment classes we held focused on the Jalie pattern line.
Since selling my business I’ve sewn quite a few test garments for Distinctive Sewing Supplies, an online retailer of fine fabrics and patterns working out of Oakville Ontario and most of the patterns were by Jalie.
Sew now I’ve been sewing for Jalie directly as part of a testing team!
The pattern that we’re testing hasn’t been released yet, but stick around here, and as soon as it is, I’ll let you know!
Here are the fabrics I chose for the next one.
