#WORKOUT GEAR - ELEVENTH HOUR CHALLENGE ENTRY...

...the SewMuchTalentgr Facebook group has a sewing or crafting challenge each month of the year.  Due to my work life it's not easy for me to participate in the challenges every month - but when I can, I do.  This month's challenge was workout gear.  Even though I'm not currently doing "that gym" thing, I can always use another knit top, and I wanted to participate in the challenge.

I've been eyeing Burda 6630 for sometime now and although it's just yet "another" knit tee shirt pattern I was drawn to it.

I've never made a raglan sleeve before.  I'm  always just a little bit intimidated when it comes to techniques, designs or styles (and Burda patterns as well) I've never tried before - this top was no exception. So I thought, might as well go ahead and try.  It wasn't bad at all. 

My review:  VERY form fitted.  So I will add needed adjustments the next time I use the pattern.  I love the little raglin cap sleeve.
In the meantime, this will do just fine for a workout top - that is whenever I can make myself get back into the gym...

  1. LOL! We all are trying to get back there! This is really cute Ms. Faye!! That's what it's all about comfortable workout gear can be worn working out around the house too! Laundry, vacuuming, mopping, dusting...you get what I mean! I have this pattern to and have not made it yet. Good to know it's really fitted!

    1. Yes, I really need at home wear too. I have lots of tops that need to be replaced.
