Right down to the last minute (almost): My Sew Stretchy Workout Top

I had planned to not leave this until the last minute, but my first stretchy project didn’t pan out (a bamboo jersey knit version of the Scout tees I made the other week – too big and saggy!) and is currently sat in the corner thinking about what it has done, and so this was project number 2, something I have been planning to do for a while.

I have this top:

The original North Face top

..a North Face workout top. I liked the style and cut of it, curves are added in using the side panels, giving a comfy yet flattering top. So of course I wanted to make another, and thought it would be just the challenge for Sew Stretchy!

I made a pattern from the original, taking note of construction as I went along. Made a test top out of some regular technical wicking fabric from Joann, then…… treated myself to something a little more exciting from Spoonflower!

…..and I had planned to take some more proper pictures, (perhaps even outside!) but I didn’t have time, so here are some action shots in the sewing room!

Adipose workout top

I love it!

I love the way it came together, I think it looks good with the white, and the adipose are super cute.

    • I love the print, and how the top looks, but I am not so much a fan of the fabric itself. Spoon flower have just started doing a different type of technical fabric, I wonder if that would be any better?


  1. Okay, super amazing workout top! But like five million extra bonus points for adipose! 😀 😀 😀 Looks amazing on you! 😀


    • It was quicker than anticipated once I got going. My only problem was that I first serged my pieces together the wrong way round, and unpicking those seams was a nightmare!
