Un petit quelque chose ~

When I go to the gym I usually wear tank tops or tee shirts but for yoga I like something a little more interesting and a bit more fashionable; a looser and more flowing fit. I found this top by Olivia Moon which I love, it looks very ordinary but for some reason the fit and drape is very flattering and comfortable. I have been looking for another one, but so far I haven't found anything. So...
I got the brilliant idea to make a pattern from it and make one!

I found this silky knit which turned out to be perfect.

Knits are disgustingly easy to sew with and I am very happy with my new top, in fact I plan on wearing it to my yoga class this evening.

If you haven't ever tried yoga I highly recommend it: adaptable to any age and condition, keeps you flexible and strong, excellent for your posture, and is so relaxing.
Thank you for visiting!


  1. Looks great!! it turned out really well. Great reminder to I have been meaning to do some yoga I have been stiff and sore it is so good for that!! ~Love Heather

  2. Ooh, that turned out nice! I love the print!

  3. Really turned out great and I love the fabric pattern. Maybe I should do yoga since I am so stiff from old age.

  4. I have not sewed in a long time. I think it is about time I get the machine out.

  5. How cool that you got in and made you another great yoga tank! I love to sew and any day at the machine is a good one I say!

  6. That looks great, Adrienne. I've been terrible about exercising that my kids will be going back to school I hope to get a routine going again.

  7. I love it, it looks very nice. I have done yoga myself for several years, but because of knee problems I had to stop.

  8. I'm always in awe of your sewing talents. I'm sure you look so pretty in your outfit. PS. Love your blog header. Miss Twiggley is just precious.

  9. That's a very nice print that you used. I like to have flattering clothes to wear for exercise.

  10. Well done! When I find something I love - something that fits and flatters and feels wonderful - I wish I could duplicate it. You've done it so beautifully!

  11. Such a cute top! I love yoga but have not been doing much of it since my move. I really notice the difference and can't wait to get back into my routine. Enjoy your class and your cute top too.

    Big Texas Hugs,

  12. Hi Adrienne. Oh, I love what you've done. The fabric is so pretty and I bet it looks great on you. You make yoga sound very interesting. I have never tried it but the old bones are starting to stiffen up, so may be just the ticket. It's offered locally and I think I will check it out..Happy Weekend..Judy
