Great idea. I hope to make similar tops out of my patterns. I really don't like showing my tummy.

I loved your alteration. I haven't made this pattern because I didn't like the "short" top. Now, I think, with your comments, I should try it. Thanks!

really really nice, love the colours, that fabric looks gorgeous (wish I knew where to find stuff like that here in Oz!). having such nice outfits sure helps the motivation to get to the gym, doesn't it!

Wow, those are really cute sports bras! I might have to take a look at that pattern after this review.

You are so wise to sew yourself some cute exercise clothes. I always think this type of clothing is so overpriced in RTW.

These are great! I love the colors. I'll have to keep this pattern in mind in case I ever decide to do some public exercise (:

Well done! They're gorgeous. I've just ordered this pattern, so I'll be printing off your review to do something similar!

Your colorblocking really adds a shapely appearance. Way to work those curvy lines! It's the perfect time of year to add some pizazz to exercising. I'm always inspired by your reviews. Thanks!

These tops are fabulous. I'm really interested in making sports tops but I'm never sure what fabric to get. Your review is so informative. It will be very useful when I finally take the plunge.

Fabulous workout wardrobe! I love the colours and the design and seeing them all together they look like a designer range of gym wear. Your photos always look so professional too, i love the composites.

I love your bra tops! I, too, am quite small on top, so I like being able to make sport bras. This looks like a great pattern. Thanks for the ideas about how to add the lower bodice area. And the color blocking is so fun! Great job!
