Almost the same: Jalie 2921 Scarf Top

I've made this top before, with this fabric (different color).



I know a good combo when I see one.

The pattern is Jalie 2921, which I made into a top and a dress earlier in the year. This time I'm back to the top version, and the only change I made this time was to shorten the ties by 5 inches. I like this change so much that my earlier versions may get the chop.



Since I can't tie a bow, I have to leave the ties long, and I find that they just get in the way. I'm constantly getting them wet while I'm doing dishes or washing the girls hair, and I've almost cut them off more than once while sewing.

The fabric is the Uber Soft Rayon Blend Jersey from GorgeousFabrics.com. She's all out of the peacock, but there's still some magenta (same as my first top) and army green. This stuff is amazingly soft - it makes me want to hug myself!

  1. Lovely! You look so fantastic in those jewel tones :-) Next time I see you, I'll give you a bow-tying intensive. I'm great at it. All those years of teaching little ones how to tie a bow, I guess!!

    1. Yes, please, Gail! Or do a video tutorial for me. I've gone as far as searching YouTube to learn how to tie a bow, but nothing really helped. I need a good teacher!
