This is a digital sewing pattern for a close-fitting, sleeveless workout top with front scoop neck, and choice of three upper back designs. An optional built-in bra is included, and neck and armhole edges can either be finished with hidden elastic or bound using a coverstitch binder.
UPDATE: NOW WITH NEWLY–ADDED SIZE XXS! You asked for it, I delivered – I’ve now added a smaller, XXS size to the pattern for all you smaller ladies!
Intermediate sewing skills are required for this pattern – some experience with sewing knits is expected. Note that this pattern requires stretch jersey fabric with good recovery – it is drafted with negative ease (the finished garment will be 90% of body measurements)! The bra requires power mesh lining fabric with stretch in both directions.
1cm (3/8in) seam allowances are included except for bra’s wide elastic edges where 2cm (3/4in) is included. A 3cm (1 1/4”) hem allowance is also included.
This pattern is designed and tested to print onto both A4 and US Letter paper, and uses 12 pages for the pattern. A “Print at Copy Shop” version is available upon request.
I am a long-distance runner and also a sewist – I’ve long been disappointed by the quality and fit of exercise clothing available on the market, so I’ve been sewing my own for the past few years – even running two full marathons in my own leggings! All my digital sewing patterns have been road-tested by myself and a team of fellow fit sewists.
