I started this next gym outfit on Sunday....but I think this tank might be too good for the gym, ha ha.
The tank is my usual Simplicity 8779.
I ran out of the W-I-D-E 1" fold over elastic that I now like using for finishing the tank, but you can see where it's going!
Folded in half, it's a half inch binding, which makes a really nice looking strap and finishes the raw edge nicely.
And look, I eliminated the CB seam on the tank, so I wouldn't have to worry about lace matching. The lace is super stretchy so I can get away with eliminating the CB seam.
The "hem" of the tank is the selvedge of the stretch lace--very awesome!
The skort is currently in two pieces and is from two different Jalie patterns.
The skirt is Jalie 3025, a figure skating skirt pattern. I used view A (upper left and center skirts on the pattern photo) and lengthened it 5 inches. It really makes that flouncy skirt look, especially in the back view.
Since the pattern comes with attached panties and I prefer attached shorts, I'm using the compression shorts from Jalie 2796.
Since I haven't sewn the skirt and shorts together yet, I could put the skirt on Izzy.
The stretch lace is also from Apple Annie's.
The fabric under the stretch lace is Nike Dri-Fit from SewSassy (scroll way down on that page to get to it).
I can't wait for the FOE to arrive so I can finish it off!!
