Well hi welcome to my little blog. Just my little corner of craftiness, sewing, and refashioning. I am also a newly gluten free eater so you have a little bit of recipes mixed in here.

Sports bra/tank fusion, Papercut pattern- Penuma Tank

I am super excited about this pattern. For real! It is my first sports bra/tank top fusion. This is my first go with Papercut Patterns, which is from New Zealand. Yes these patterns shipped from NZ!

When I saw this tank, I knew I had to make it- the Pneuma Tank.
I just fell for the back.

What I did not realize when I was beginning to cut this pattern was that fact this called for bra strapping. This would NOT work for me as if you see below, there is NO WAY I would ever find this color or a color to match. I did contact the company for suggestions but I have yet to get a response.  So I made my own and just winged it. Hindsight, I should have cut just a bit longer. I made a tube, cut equally in 4 parts and sewed. The pattern is not hard, except the straps part I had to wing.

While writing this post I realize that my straps are way higher than the ones in the photos and this is why I felt as if the tank part is not long enough. Ding! Light bulb just went off. But I do like the coverage. I will probably make another one but make longer straps. Don't you just love this pattern? The sports bra is this magenta color and the print has that magenta color in it, so it is the perfect combination

From the back perspective, I think it sits right. Just not the front. Hmm.

Ready for some yoga. That is about all I will be able to use this top for- yoga and light exercise. It doesn't have support but it is not designed to have it either. I love building up my exercise arsenal. I am learning step by step!

And shame on me for not getting together my coverstitcher still. I know...

Really nicely done! It’s very innovative. Looking good! I usually shop for sports bras online. I am an athlete and I recently bought a sports bra from Carbon38 that I really liked. It was really comfortable I must say (although a bit pricy but what the heck).
