Description

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.

Material Notes

Adult lycra cycling jersey.

    I was so pleased to see this cycling shirt on this site this morning. Besides sewing, cycling is my other passion and I have been thinking of making my own cycling tops, so now you have inspired me. I think you have done an amazing job and your Godson looks very sporty in his new cycling jersey.
