Pneuma Tank

Recently I feel like there has been a lot of chatter about how great Papercut Patterns are.   I decided to check out their website when looking for some patterns to treat myself to for my birthday.  When I did, I came across one of their new patterns that just called to me - the Pneuma Tank. 

Ages ago I had pinned some yoga tanks just like it that I was planning to figure out how to draft myself, but why bother when the work has been done?  

The pattern is basically a sports bra with a flowy knit tank attached.  The tank nicely skims the body so that it's comfortable and great for both yoga or running.  

I love the criss-cross strap back, but I had the most difficult time finding the bra strapping that is recommended.  I saw a couple places online that I may try, but for this tank I lucked out and found 2 yards of black at my local JoAnn Fabrics (in the trim by-the-yard section).  I bet fold over elastic could even work, though the strapping is way easier to add. 

I also love the scooped hemline that allows for just enough coverage.

I can't wait to get more bra strapping to make another.  It's a pretty straight forward sew.  It's also already super hot here so this is nice and breezy to wear when fast walking jogging outside.  Hello weird tan lines!


  1. I love it! I hadn't ever thought of sewing my running clothes, but this top looks perfect!

  2. This looks amazing on you! I'm going to have to check out these Papercut patterns. Thank you so much for linking up!
