Last year I bought a number of Jalie’s new releases, but found that there were several that I never got around to sewing… Pika was one of them. But I’m finally getting off my rear and stitching this one up!
I wound up tracing this pattern off over the weekend and creatively playing with my remnant fabrics from my Loulouxe project in an attempt to eek this one out (to make a coordinating outfit). I opted for the solid front and back with the “Just Do It” print for the sports bra and facing. I would have much rather had a solid facing with this, but just didn’t have enough material to work with. As for the hem band, I’d like to leave it off. It appears from the photos that they may have done this as well and I like the way it looks – more on that once this project is complete!
