- Yey for well thought out patterns!
This is my first Jalie make, and I am kicking myself for not trying this company sooner! I often have fit issues, mostly because I am a pear shape and I don't fit into one size, but also because a lot of patterns simply aren't drafted well and wearing ease is a joke. Not with this pattern! With my simple size blending (from CC at bust to EE at full hip) I was able to get a garment that fit me exactly like it fits the model in the picture, despite being clearly a different size and shape to the model. Which, let me tell you, is like finding the golden ticket, IT IS AMAZING. It was easy to put together, overall not taking very long. Some clear thought was put into containing exposed seams at the shoulders and basically anywhere a seam might peep to the right side, so my muslin cardigan looks very finished.
I found the instructions a little frustrating to follow. I loved the pictures, but I wish the description for each figure was under the figure rather than on a separate page, which required much flicking between. I had to read over them a few times before it clicked, and now that I have made it, I really won't need the instructions again. I suspect all Jalie patterns are set up this way, though this very very minor annoyance of mine will not prevent me from purchasing more, making more, and recommending more!

- I'm in love with the finished cardigan
I find that Jalie patterns fit my body using my measurements. The only adjustments I need to make are in the length. I'm 5"1 . In saying that, most patterns are too long for me.
I will admit I struggled a little bit with the instructions (pocket and back hem) on this particular pattern, but got there in the end. I don't think this pattern would be suitable for a sewing newbie (only due to the instructions).
The end product is something I will definitely wear often and I'm sure I'll make plenty more!
