Jalie 3245 Version Two
The fact there is a version two of Jalie 3245 may have you wondering about version one. I have to say I have, due to a backlog in blogging, jumped the queue with version two. Version one is a 3/4 sleeve tee top and there wasn't any way I was posing in Central Otago in mid winter in this top. My latest merino version is a completely different kettle of fish.
This top is completely made of leftovers. The spots was a top of mine and the solid colour leftover from a top of Courteney's. Both fabrics are merino blend and both were bought at The Fabric Store. I always tend to err on the side of caution when buying fabrics in case they shrink in the wash.
I raised the neckline on this top because my first version has a very low neckline for a winter top. I like them to be a bit higher so that I can wear a scarf and of course to keep me warmer. I also straightened the front hem but I left the back hem as drafted.
Will I make this top again? Yes definitely! I already have some fabric put aside for spring.
These photos were taken in Wanaka on our recent family ski trip. It was a lovely crisp winter's day so perfect for these photographs.
