Jalie is a mother-daughter company based in Saint-Romuald, near Quebec City, Canada. The company was founded by Jeanne Binet (JA) in 1983 and her daughter Emilie (LIE) joined her full-time in 2005.
Jalie started with jogging suits, swimwear and other patterns for knits that you could sew without a serger. Thirty years later, we like to say that we specialize in everything other companies won't tackle: multi-sizing that includes both children and adult sizes, patterns for knits, activewear / sportswear patterns, . All our patterns are fitted on real people, not mannequins and sew all our prototypes with a home sewing machine, not industrial. We want to make sure that you will be able to recreate everything we make without breaking needles. We sew and sew again until we find the easiest way possible for you to achieve a professional result.
We take great pride in offering a stellar customer service. If you have any questions, please get in touch with us through our "contact us" form and we will gladly get back to you with detailed and resourceful answers. We also love to see photos of your creations and get your feedback, constructive comments and suggestions about our patterns. This is how we can evolve and always make better patterns, year after year. If you are looking for a pattern that doesn't exist, please send your request our way - we always love the challenge :)
Jalie patterns are printed on heavy paper since 1983. Our last collection is printed in full color to make tracing easier. We also offer a PDF alternative for out-of-print patterns and for popular designs.
Inside the pattern

Instructions in English and French are printed on the pattern with both metric and imperial measurements. We also provide detailed illustrations to guide you through each and every step.
