Another Jalie MultiSport Skort
I had grand dreams today of working on a dress. But, I tried to hang last night with the 20 somethings in my office and am suffering for it today. Quick post on what I did eek out before I head out to show for Baltimore Fashion Week.
I am not a sports person. I never played organized sports and I don’t follow any. I can’t throw a baseball and I’m scared the basketball will hit me in my face during lay ups. I once got hit in the face by a soccer ball in 8th grade and haven’t looked back since. The only games I go to are the Oriole’s when I get free box seats at work. And, event then, I don’t watch the game. I like very little physical exercise. 1. Swimming 2. Biking 3. Ballet I used to like yoga but it’s too hard on my wrist (tendonitis). And by like, I mean ‘don’t hate’. Be it vanity or health, exercise is a necessity and you gotta wear something cute.
I really love this Jalie 2796. Here is my second version (with knickers). Infinitely more flattering on me than shorts. The best feature is the side pocket that can hold your iPod or Blackberry (me).
This version is with the wider waistband. I have a seam down the center back because I make a swayback adjustment which also serves a full seat adjustment.
Funny aside. When I first made this up I was slightly annoyed that Jalie just had diagrams and no written instructions. Turns out THEY DO. I just needed to actually look at the entire pattern instead of the section with photos. Doh. But, that should tell you how simple this pattern is to construct. This time, I didn’t even look at the pictures.
I actually look almost athletic, huh?
