Here’s the gray (anthracite) Nike Dri-Fit fabric married to Jalie 2215. I’ve made this top numerous times. It is certainly a winner. In this version, I lengthened the arms, added thumbs holes, and added a high neck band for added warm-fuzziness.
I can also say it has been approved as a cold-weather layering top. I put this on as my base layer and put a windbreaker on over it (it’s been in the 30’s when I run) and went for a run. It wicks with the best of my running tops. Of course, I guess that makes sense. It is Nike wicking fabric.
I added some fun Urban Threads embroidery to the lower back.
Here it is all spread out. If you don’t have Jalie 2215, you should get it (it’s out of print but you can still get the electronic download). It’s a kid and adult pattern and has this raglan tee (I’ve made numerous times!), a stretch boot running pant (made that a few times too!), and a cute skirt (never made that).
I know you guys want to buy some of this fabric. I will put some stuff up in my Etsy shop. I think I’ll sell it in 2 yard increments but you can do a custom order for more or less yardage. I’m only putting 12 yards of it up for sale. Enjoy!
Here's a description of the fabric:
Dri-Fit Stretch Fabrics - Hi-Wick Comfort Paired with Lycra Stretch and Return
The Dri-Fir series features advanced wicking performance developed for active individuals. Specially formulated hydrophobic polyester fibers move heat generated body moisture away from the skin to the outer surface of the fabric. The enhanced dissipation of this moisture on the outer surface results in rapid evaporation, keeping the wearer cool and comfortable. The lycra content adds plenty of stretch for active comfort as well as great fit.
