MAGICAL!! Yeah, totally…MAGICAL! No Harry Potter magic though behind that tee, ‘just’ the wonderful designers behind Jalie Patterns! I’ve been one of the lucky Jalie testers for the past few months and I had the privilege to test Bobbie, the magical V-neck tee.
So, let me tell you that Bobbie (Jalie #3880) is a tee that is quick to sew, elegant, cute, and fashionable. That’s the tee you sew when you have nothing to wear (see what I mean?!? I’m sure you can relate!).
It has a lovely dolman cut, it’s not too boxy, and you won’t have to cut multiple pieces!!!!
Why is Bobbie so different from other dolman tees???
OK, you see those nice dolman sleeves? They do have a nice opening on the side? Do you see any bra peeking??? NOOOOO!
No bra playing peekabo here. Thats the magic of the Bobbie.
Bobbie has a kind of cropped tank underneath that hides everything that needs to be hidden, especially…the bra, blah! No bra showing as soon as you raise your arm. And you know how tweens/teens can be with bra showing.
The crop tank also acts as a kind of facing and it keeps the main fabric close to the body and it does not reveal anything at the front.
A tee for every lady
Bobbie requires some lightweight knit fabric with a nice drape. I bought this fabric a while ago, from an e-shop now closed.
Since my coverstitch sometimes doesn’t like
me my hems, I used some [amazon_textlink asin=’B001IKEOE4|B000YZAQJQ|B001IKEOE4|B000YZAQJQ’ text=’washable tape ‘ template=’ProductLink’ store=’lacasacactus-20|lacasacactus-21|lacasacactu0a-20|lacasacactu0e-21′ marketplace=’US|UK|CA|DE’ link_id=’42ba2c90-804b-11e8-af21-0fd26b2118ab’]before hemming.
She does look rather happy in her Bobbie!!!
