Another gym top - this time, one I do actually wear to the gym!
Burdastyle 07-2010-115 - not intended as a gym top, but I thought it might work (and it does!)
The fabric is a technical jersey from Gorgeous fabrics . A really pretty blue and has a self stripe with little vented holes so comfortable to wear in a workout. Again I have my dark blue crop underneath so it shows it is quite low at the front, but echoes the crop top's lines so I like the way it layers.
The back is cute but fits my dressmaking dummy better than me - too much weight training???
Anyway I am wondering how I could alter this to lose the creases under the arms. Perhaps a wedge added to the top at each side?
This top, while not intended as work-out wear suits me well for this purpose. It is quite comfortable to wear to the gym. I have worn it to boxing classes as well as to weight train in. I wouldn't mind adding a little to the length if I made another one and I may see if I can work out how to get rid of the creases caused by the broadness of my back at arm height.
I followed the pattern and found the use of the vilene bias tape on the upper edges of the top and straps to make the construction quick and painless. I was lucky to find I had some, but it did use up the roll so I will have to get more before I try this top again.
I am going to review this pattern and link it here. Does anyone have any favorite patterns for workout wear?? I would love to hear about them... Ciao for now!
