S9776 tank + Jalie 3025 skirt + Jalie 2796 compression shorts done

S9776 tank + Jalie 3025 skirt + Jalie 2796 shorts

I want to say a big thank you to the 38 of you who voted for me for the PR Activewear contest--I really appreciate your vote and support!  I came in 8th out of 65 who completed their entries.  The top 6 made jackets with zippers which is something I haven't attempted in a long, long time.

Meanwhile, I finished up my next activewear outfit....

The skirt is meant for ice skating, so it has a very flouncy feel.

I will make my next pair of shorts shorter as they do peek out from under my skirt unless I hike them up a bit.

I did not attach the shorts to the skirt as they are from two different patterns and meant to sit on two different places on the body.  But by not sewing them together, it gives me more mix and match options, with the caveat that I must remember to pack both a skirt and shorts for class!

The shorts just have FOE at the top and are hemmed with my stretch twin needle.

I love this lace fabric SO SO SO much...you will see it again....
Deets on all the fabrics for this outfit are in this other post.

I added 5" to the bottom of the skirt--I might add another inch next time as it is kind of short.

The skirt raw edge not hemmed but it is serged.

I did not attach the yoke to the skirt.  Instead I used FOE on the top of my skirt.  Originally I just serged it but did not apply the FOE but the skirt really needs elastic to stay level during class, as I found out during Monday's class when after a bunch of squats I could see the back of my skirt from the front.

By Thursday's class I applied the FOE and it was fine!  One of my classmates who I don't know told me that my skirt is "so cute" and that it would be great for a coverup at the beach.

I don't know about you darlings but I have been feeling really tired and sort of burned out by many aspects of my life.  I feel like my body and brain needs a break, a reboot, something....

Be well!

  2. Such stylish workout wear! Maybe a little change of scenery would help -- a day trip to NYC?

    1. It's exciting for me to hear that it motivated you to get Jalie patterns and make more workout wear!!! For me the right gym combo was:
      Finding the right classes + finding the right instructor + finding the days/times that work with my schedule. Having fun gear helps too!

    1. Maybe I should have gone to Puyallup this year???

      Unless I'm overly tired, exercise makes me feel better.

  6. Nice top. I can't believe that you needed 5" on that skirt, man is must have been cheeky.

    1. It is one of those super-short skating skirts. But I didn't use the yoke either. Using the yoke would have made a difference. I might use the yoke on the next one I make, though the goal was really about reducing bulk there.
