Jalieasy Way

I have been going thru my Patterns and sorting them out.

Basically re-organizing them in order by Company and pattern number. I came across 3 older Jalie patterns. My sister had discovered Jalie patterns when she started sewing in the 80's. Of course I had to buy some too.

This Polo Shirt # 2941 A, is copyright 1983.
These other two are 1986. I'm thinking I bought these patterns- maybe late 80's because 2941-A is size Newborn to 3X. My daughter was born in 1985.
Jalie 2924B size 4-16 ............................ ..................................................Jalie 2924C-size 24-42
If you use Jalie patterns, what is your oldest pattern?

Great Coat Sew Along - Ann's Progress

* My Post taken from - The Great Coat Sew Along Blog *
Hi Marji,
Great idea to roll call :)
I have been working on Burda 7855 and I have made great progress with my coat.
I did blog some on my blog. I guess I've been pretty silent during my progress. I felt that I wasn't really taking great big steps while making the coat, so at the time didn't figure I should post here. I have the coat and lining done, but not sewn together yet!
From the start I had trouble finding just the right buttons, and just last week, did find what I hope to be the perfect ones. I'm still waiting for them to arrive from The Button Drawer. When they do arrive I will just have to make my bound button holes (a bit out of sequence but still ok) /sew the lining in/ buttons/ hems......take pictures....
Even though it's taken what seems way too long to make this coat,I've had allot of fun.
Congratulations to those who have finished their coats. They all look wonderful and are all very impressive!
