Hi Craftsters,

I've just finished my first Lycra top! I hope I won't have to work with lycra again for quite some time ... but I'm happy with how it turned out. I used the Jalie 2449 cross-over top pattern.

Oh, very nice!  I've never heard of that company, so I'll have to check them out.

Nice work!! 

I've wondered how that pattern handles, if you know what I mean.  Do you think it would have been easier using a heavier knit fabric?

I LOVE Jalie patterns (I have 3 and counting).  My main addiction are the patterns for panties -- so simple and so comfy you'd never believe it!

You get 22 sizes in a pattern, so if your weight is in transition (as mine is) it is particularly cost effective.  Check 'em out:   Grin

I think a heavier knit fabric would probably have been easier but my main problem was getting my tension/settings right on my sewing machine. It took me several hours! Of course I've made a note of these so I don't have to work them out again ...

The pattern itself was fantastic. I kept worrying about the sizing all the way through but I really shouldn't have it turned out perfect. Once you've got your machine setup it sews up really easily.
