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!
