Next up: Draped workout top

June 21, 2018 2 Comments

Time for the last installment in my new workout wardrobe. I’m currently making a t-shirt with a lot of things going on in the back. I’ve seen a lot of open back styles lately in gym wear and wanted to put my own spin to it. If you have followed me for a while, you will be familiar with the draped back, it is something I’ve added to several workout tops before. But it will be the first time I use it for a t-shirt.

Now I’m the first to admit that this top is pretty much designed for a matching sports bra, as the back solution requires some extra thought when it comes to support. I might sew a matching bra top, either in the same fabric (which feels kinda boring) or perhaps black or purple. After my ambitious sports bra project I would keep it simple this time, and just sew a basic tank bra with power net as extra support. If you are curious, I’ve done a tutorial on how to line a sports bra with power net, it is very simple and really improves the support.
