Jalie Mimosa Tee

Jalie Mimosa Tee

Let’s just keep on a Jalie streak, shall we? And then at some point I have a bunch of Closet Case Patterns things to show… because apparently I’m obsessed with patterns made in Quebec!

Jalie Mimosa Tee

This is the Mimosa tee, from Jalie’s new releases. I bought the pattern from the Jalie team at PR Weekend, because surprisingly, I don’t have a loose-but-not-boxy tee like this in my collection!

On the Jalie models, this looks like a long t-shirt, but on me and most of the people I’ve seen sew it up, it’s closer to a tunic! It actually turned out as the perfect length for wearing with leggings on casual days – everything is covered in front and back. I like how the back shirt-tail hem is slightly longer than the front, and the deeply curved split hem is a friend to those with big hips!

The downside of being so short that your tee is a tunic is that the armscye comes out a bit low. Next time I’ll remove and inch from above the bust, and add it back lower down to keep the nice tunic length! (Oh, and I made the short sleeves shorter, with a curved hem, because I find that shape flattering on me.)

I wouldn’t have normally thought to make a t-shirt in an ITY fabric, but once I saw it on the suggested fabrics, I knew it was a chance to use one of my crazy prints! I’ve had this in the stash a few years, and you’ll be seeing it again soon in another Jalie project!

This is one of those nice, simple patterns that I know I’ll make again – it would be really cute lengthened and belted as a dress, plus there are the ruffled shoulder and long sleeved versions to explore! I think my Mom might like this pattern, too!

Did you buy any of the new Jalie patterns? I was sent two before PR Weekend, and bought this and the Juila cami/bralette/underwear… and I’m seriously tempted by the Bobbie v-neck as well!

  1. This looks really cute on you. I feel like that hem line (especially from the side view) is kind of like the knit cousin of the Kalle shirt hem!! And can’t wait to see these Closet Case makes you’re promising…

  2. I grabbed the Mimosa and the Lisette – you can never have too many knit pencil skirt patterns! I got the Gerald as well, but that’s not for me. πŸ™‚

  3. I bought 4! The Mimosa, Bobbie, Lisette and Clara leggings. Love your Mimosa! I haven’t made mine up yet because I’ve been busy on a “woven” top and now Kimono blitz πŸ™‚ I needed a couple of linen/cotton type of tops for what I suspect is going to be a hot summer ahead.

    1. Thank you! I really wanted to wear it to work, but even at the end of the year, leggings as pants are just too casual!

  4. It looks awesome! Is that the one that has the tank inside? I haven’t bought anything yet because I won’t have any sewing time for, like, a month starting next week. I don’t want to torture myself with pretty patterns I can’t make up. But I do have a list of the ones I want. There’s the Mimosa, Bobbie, and I forget the others’ names but I know there’s 4 or 5 I’m definitely getting.

  5. I missed this pattern on PR weekend. I think I need this one! I’ve made a few t-shirts in ITY – I find it makes them nice enough to wear to work in the summer with capris and a cardigan. I’ve made the Bobbie already, with the inside facing and it’s brilliant. I wonder f you could adapt the facing to this one so you don’t need to mess with the armhole. I love the facing. But I’ve also made that adjustment to shorten the armhole many times. Nice job, great fabric. Can’t wait to see what else you make.

  6. So helpful – now I’ve got a better idea on how to deal with gaping armscythes without losing length, thank you! And the idea of lengthening it even more into a dress? – I’ve already mentally selected my fabric :)) My figure is very similar to yours, so I’m semi-confident that this pattern will be a worthwhile project for me as it looks so good on you. You’re so inspiring! πŸ™‚
