Pattern Review: Jalie 2921 Scarf-Collar Knit Top

Style Tip: Try this top in a glitter knit for the perfect New Year's Eve party style.

Jalie 2921

This fashionable, close-fitting top features a tie neckline with a variety of style options. You can wear it with an added buckle, tied in a knot or bow, or threaded through a small slit opening at the center-front seam. The band is applied to the neck edge by machine, burrito style, enclosing all of the seam allowances inside prior to sewing the side and center-front seams. Sleeve options include sleeveless, short, or threequarter lengths, making this pattern usable through many seasons. Instructions are written in French and English. Our tester, who also reads French, discovered some of the text did not translate entirely into English. With the aid of the illustrations, however, non-French speaking sewers will have no difficulty with the construction. The sewing is easy and fast, and all seamlines, match points, and notches line up correctly. This design is for knits, with at least 40 percent stretch in both directions. If choosing a fabric with less stretch, a separate binding for finishing the sleeveless armhole is recommended.

(Sized 4-22 for busts 33-50 in.)

Style Tip: Try this top in a glitter knit for the perfect New Year’s Eve party style.
