Jalie Scarf Top
I know everyone has made the Jalie scarf top, but its become one of my favorites. I have one in solid black jersey, one in this cool jersey from Mood Fabrics
and one in shiny silver metallic lame from CaliFabrics.com (which didn't quite have enough stretch, but it will do!)
I love that its not a huge fabric hog despite the long ties - I bought 2 yards of this blue and pink jersey and made the 3/4 length Jalie and had enough left to eek out a short sleeved Renfrew!
Its very flattering, you have options with the sleeve length, you can adjust the tie length if you are not so into bows (I usually just loop mine), and its a really simple pattern that is comfy like a tshirt but has a little something extra, and you can have fun with prints.
Jalie's sizing is not bad, I cut an "S" but I cut "V" sleeves, and sort of blended them. I made a Jalie plain old tshirt once and the bodice fit fine but the sleeves were too tight for my mighty yoga arms. This time I measured the flat pattern and added a little extra ease. I'm happy with the "S" fit on me.

|as I mentioned, not quite stretchy enough., but it works!|
This is one my favorite patterns, I have plans for a few more in both solids and prints. Highly recommend.
