Jalie 4014 - COCO - Sport Bra (Views B and A)) - with modified Clara leggings
Product Review (submitted on May 13, 2020):
This is the new Jalie Coco 4014 pattern. My daughter measured a perfect Size 7 although she’s 12. For these smaller girls sizes there are no cups involved and I feel that the pattern could have simplified the lining construction due to this. 5 pattern pieces is just not necessary when you’re sewing them to produce a flat piece with no shape. Also the 4 additional seams add unnecessary bulk and the whole process takes up time unnecessarily. Next time I’ll be merging all those pieces into one. The band I found strange to attach to the wrong side and then fold it upward on the outside. I would have preferred to sew it first to the right side and fold it upwards towards the inside. I feel this would have guaranteed a better seam on the outside. I wonder if this is to reduce the bulk on the inside though? Overall I am very happy with the fit. My daughter loves it and says it’s very comfortable.
