Jalie is a canadian company
which creates very hip modern clothing. It is the place to go for new styles (shrugs, yoga pants etc) it also has great kids patterns and patterns for (gasp) men.
If you are into sportswear, skating gear etc they have a large line of these too.

But my favourite thing is.... ALL SIZES from 2 year olds to plus sizes are in the same envelope!! They are printed on heavy paper to trace and you have to use your measurements as the sizes are A to Z, no numbers to get hung up on, careful though b/c you may need a different size between styles, keeps you measuring yourself:wink:

So I can make the same top for me, my 7 year old, my mum and sister all from the same pattern (not that I have done this but I could!)

The instructions are clear and not tooo detailed (but not as sparse as burda) and they have nice diagrams as well.

You can order directly from their website or other sources such as Julie at

I have a Jalie t-shirt pattern that I have used over and over again. They fit very nicely thru the shoulder and never look sloppy. # 2005 has 3 neckline views.
