What’s a workout skort without a matching top? I used the rest of the material from my Jalie 2796 project to whip up a second zippered V-Neck. I wanted it to coordinate with the skirt fabrics, but didn’t want to do any color blocking so instead, I made the top exterior out of the light gray (these are the side panels on the skort), used a dark grayblue contrasting zipper and used the dark grayblue fabric for the lining – if you look closely when it’s unzipped you can see that the material peeking out.
I can honestly say that this top went together much smoother the second time around, although the fit is different from my first top – I now realize that this material does have a lot less stretch. Consequently, it’s a lot more snug – especially around the bust area. Maybe all this working out make me lose a few pounds and help with the lack of stretchfit?
