It Was Meant For Yoga

Well, after a long sewing hiatus I finally got some time to make something. I also needed a top for yoga and thought this pattern would fit the bill. The pattern came together really quickly and it’s very comfortable to wear.
Why I still don’t wear it for yoga and the back view can be found on my blog.

PS: The fabric is a really nice mohair knit I bought on sale from When I pre-washed it, somehow a blue silk got itslef mixed in and bled all over this nice knit. :‘( Now of course I cannot find it anymore. I might have to dye it so the blue stains aren’t visible anymore. It’s a pity, I really liked the colour.

    Ah, I’ve just started the same top and it’s encouraging to see that yours came out so nicely. I see that we even have the same Bernina :-)

      I bet by now you’re finished. It’s really great to wear!
      The Bernina is the best! And it’s also very dear to me, as it used to belong to my grandma.

    I love the colors! Completely agree it looks intentional. Our mistakes are usually seen only by own eyes … Many of mine have been the it factor in my completed projects through the eyes of others. It’s a great top.

    Most yoga tops I’ve seen have a tie-dye color mix to them anyways, this will fit right in! Great job!

      Thanks! It’s nice to hear that it doesn’t bother too much.

    Don’t worry about the colour-mix. I actually thought the top was made of tie dye knit before I read the description.
