I took a cycling top of my husband and resized it for my Godsons 6th birthday present.
I had to unpick it all, make a pattern-using a book with loads of measurements in and then because I wasn’t that confident I went out and bought a long sleeved t-shirt.
I’m really pleased with it and can’t believe how well it’s turned out, especially as I was finishing it just before we left! It fits brilliantly. I did change the pockets on the back because he’s only narrow I made it two pockets rather than the original 3 but womens jerseys have two and this allows little man to have a bottle on his back too. I chose the orange shirt as it matches his bike.
Adult lycra cycling jersey.
