Since I’m going to Mexico in a few days, I decided that I needed a rash guard type of top and something I can get wet in when I’m playing with the kids. This is Nike Dri-Fit fabric and the Funki Fabric knit. I decided to make a matching top and bottom. I think it may be too matchy-matchy, but I’m not sure. What do you guys think? Too much? Hello pasty-white Alaska legs. We sure didn’t get any snow this year, but we still have no sun!
Anyhoo, the top is a tightened raglan top from Jalie. It’s number 3245 and I’ve made it several times before. I used my regular size, but then used larger seam allowances for the sleeves and underarms and brought the side seams in quite a bit to make it more fitted.I also shortened it quite a bit from the original. I really love it in these fabrics.
I used Jalie 2796 for the bottoms. I made a size larger than usual. I’ve been cross-country skiing (skate skiing, no classic skiing for me!!) a LOT and my thighs are actually an inch or two bigger around than my normal “running legs”. I made zero modifications to this skirt.
Other FunkiFabrics favorites of mine:
My girls would go crazy for some of this for running tights.
Alas, this is the end of my fabrics from FunkiFabrics. I may be able to squeeze one more thing out of the Prism fabric. We shall see, won’t we?
